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.

I was the internet bidder... but plus the auction costs this was too heavy for me! But pushed the price way over my initial limit.

Yeah bad luck
I was in it for a while but someone on phone clearly wanted them - maybe at any cost?

Hey Beren, you weren't the only internet bidder. I know I had to get up earlier than you to bid on them!! Probably dropped out of bidding earlier as well. Someone really really wanted them!!
