Sorry, just a quick note (I haven't quite read the latter posts), getting back to the Silmarillion with CJRT signed sticker --did I miss something? $2,200 (~£1,447)!?

Yes, that's a silly price for a Silmarillion - and Christopher's autograph can't be worth as much as that, can it? (no offence to CT)

As for the Wolfe book - words fail one, don't they?

I agree, Christopher Tolkien's signatures are currently quite easy to acquire, I think I have 8 or 9 in my collection. Christopher Tolkien has signed a lot more book plates and books than his father.

You can get a signed copy by Christopher Tolkien for £245 from the HarperCollins website.

OK this is an earlier example of his signature, but £1200 more!!!

That's still expensive - I bought a one - off signed book for £35.00, not so many years ago. Just luck I expect. Though if anyone were to ask me what's a good price for a CT signature, I'd have to admit I don't know.

It has been relisted with a buy it now price of $8889, only $7200 approx more than they paid for it, what a bargain.


This book has been relisted again

The most rare book ever now has no reserve and seems to be a loss maker on the price paid to Jonkers, oh dear, it was way over the original price paid but unsold last time.

Could be a good buy as we are certain the signature (initials) are real.
