The Wonders of...

Having just spent a lot of money on what I think is a rare item, eBay often comes up trumps with what can only be described as What????

Is this signed by Christopher Tolkien? No. It might be signed by someone called Chris. Maybe. Worth putting all that in the listing though, just to be sure...

eBay Item #283256772474

EDIT: Previously titled The Silmarillion By J R R Tolkien 1st Ed 1977 Signed By Chris Tolkien.?; including blurb about not being able to say if the Chris in question is "Chris Tolkien". Now amended.

Khamûl:
That's not Christopher Tolkien's signature. It's not even that clear the signature says Chris.

cricket150262:
That's why I said I couldn't validate signiture still a cheap book compared for that edition with some others the same on eBay

Khamûl:
Why mention it then? You'd be as well adding that you don't think it's signed by his father.

What's your problem I said I couldn't validate signiture get a life

"I have tried to deceive the item as best I can". ROFL - Freudian slip?

Is it still possible for a seller trading on eBay to have & enforce a blanket "no return policy"? Distance selling laws cover Buy-it-now auctions; but for normal open auctions is it still allowed?
Nov 20, 2018
See my entire thread on this. I would say NO. In my case the buyer did finally get banned but eBay has not decided to return my 900 dollars. Everything I have read indicates the No Returns policy is toothless and any "Not as Described" claim will side in the buyer's favor. I do wonder if local laws apply. I would assume so. But in the US forget it.
