Looking back on this old(ish) thread, I see I forgot to mention that Tolkien would also sign with initials only;
To K.S. with greeting from J.R.R.T
M.E.G. from J.R.R.T
- both on copies of 'Beowulf: the Monsters and the Critics'. The first is to the man who taught him Anglo-Saxon at Oxford, Kenneth Sisam. The second is to his pupil Elaine Griffiths, who was instrumental in the publication of TH.
These copies would have been signed in July 1937; that is, only a couple of months before the publication of TH.
