Here is what he sent me:

Dear tolkien_hunter,

Hello and thank you for your interest in our auction. We are selling this book on behalf of the daughter of the recipient of the dedication/signature. He was a student at Oxford in the late 50's. I hope this helps.

I replied to him that this was not enough info. Someone will spend thousands of dollars on this tough. I wish people would just not buy signed work without good provenance so the markey for fakes would go away.
