In regards to Alan Lee signing and dating books, Alan normally signs and puts the date on the book. But like most book signers, they are normally happy to do whatever is asked for. I just asked him to sign mine and not date it, my copies do not have dates.

I don't think it is the same people, after all the seller with the previous adverts was actually at Waterstones, but they are guilty of selling the scanned image on Ebay and starting what will be a huge problem in fake bookplates. I have given up reporting these to Ebay, as they don't care if they are fakes as long as they get their money for selling the item.

Rowns, what has happened to the number of posts they all went back to zero?

I forgot to put that Alan Lee was also at the signing, yet the Children of Hurin book is not signed by him, it would have been signed if bought from Waterstones.

This is a 2 day sale so please can people report this to Ebay, I do not want someone to waste at least £500 pounds on these books. The seller has bought 5 items for no more than £5 on Ebay so has a 100% feedback, all looks very dodgy.

Have a look at this Ebay listing

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/children-of-hur ... 64205QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

I was at Waterstones, the bookplates were not put on the Title Page as in the picture and I would be amazed that they ran out of Children of Hurin books, so put them in The Hobbit instead.

Looks to me like Fake Bookplates? I am going to report these to Ebay.

"Asked to design a fitting repository for a client’s valuable collection of J.R.R. Tolkien manuscripts and artifacts, architect Peter Archer went to the source—the fantasy novels that describe the abodes of the diminutive Hobbits.

“I came back my client and said, ‘I’m not going to make this look like Hollywood,’” Archer recalled, choosing to focus instead on a finely-crafted structure embodying a sense of history and tradition."

This is an interesting idea, but a bit to much like the film's for my liking, what do you think?
