here's an interesting listing on ebay; it includes a copy of Tolkien's translation of Beowulf - I hadn't heard of any copies being signed, nor have I seen a bookplate like this. Too rich for my blood.

Already talked to the seller, it's just tipped in; and unfortunately the provenance is the usual "estate sale"...

These books were in an auction about 2-3 months ago. I know because it made enquires at time. Doesn't look great to me

Random booklate that may or may not be genuine stuck in a book where it doesn't look particularly attractive. Even if it is genuine, it has a "just for the sake of it" appearance. Wouldn't be getting any of my money.
