I'd buy it, but I already own a copy, and the pen inscription turns me off a bit.

There is also a UK version of this book for sale here: http://www.the-saleroom.com/en-gb/auc ... e-id-2854836/lot-13537971

Says it is signed, but info is minimal.

Oh well, then; I s'pose I'd better not mention the previous lot in that auction - a signed FGH, published by Unwin Brothers, 1949.

Lot 1012 (Tom Bombadil) - Dust jacket slightly frayed, slight discolouration, overall typical wear. Signed but provenance unavailable.

So do you think the signatures are original? I haven't got a clue.
