I had dealings with a vinyl seller many years ago who employed the exact same template of selling signed copies yet did not mention it anywhere, then when he got caught he changed the tactic to only saying that he could not guarantee items were genuine. He got into trouble in the end but another seller then started who was connected. Long story short.... This sig not only looks fake as pointed out but the tactics are slippery.



As soon as I see any seller that deals predominantly in signed items, I assume they are a crook.

Third printing is also backwards relative to the Art of The Hobbit. I figure they are all like that until I see a photo showing otherwise :)

That also isn't the signature style he was predominantly using at that time.

Could be real, just as (more) likely isn't.

CT signatures are two-a-penny anyway (thanks to all the limited editions), so I don't think it is worth attributing too much value to them, even where they are genuine.

Well, my replacement Aotrou and Itroun arrived from BD, and this time made it through in perfect condition. It is still a first impression, unlike Kullervo, which went to 2nd impression pretty much right away. Not sure if this implies less popularity or a larger print run.

I think you got quite a good deal for that Hobbit.
