I think it would have been unusual for CT to sign the actual books - much easier all round for the publisher to send him a packet of bookplates. Allen and Unwin did the same thing in 1987, when CT signed the first 100 bookplates for the full-leather 'super de luxe' Hobbit. And of course, more recently, CT signed a number of bookplates for the publication of CoH.

Mind you, the super deluxe copies (and those of Sigurd and Gudrun) are signed to the page... I guess CT and Alan Lee may have been sent the sheets to sign?
