Definitely a useful link that should be highlighted on the site and on the collectors' pages. And ("dreamly" speaking) on ​​the online sales sites to prevent costly mistakes for the uninformed buyers.

They have reduced the price from £2,513.97 to £817.22 and removed the following from the listing Tolkien signed this copy on the inner title page (see photo attached). Full refund if not satisfied with authenticity of signature but I still think the listing is misleading as I think they should state it has a facsimile signature not Tree and Leaf Signed by J.R.R. Tolkien

I did look at this. The silk is a fair match but the spine looks like buckram. I'm assuming it's an amateur rebind, but it could be something more interesting.

I know what you mean, but it is actually an eleventh printing 2008... so surely it is a custom binding.
