Hi. Everyone! I am new to this forum, but not to Tolkien forums in general. To introduce myself a little, I have been buying and reading Tolkien books for many years. My first Tolkien book that I owned was the 1961 Puffin Hobbit that my mother bought for me the year it came out. It has long since fallen apart!
I now have a fairly large, and mostly un-catalogued Tolkien collection, mainly in boxes. I also have 2-3 boxes of works by C.S. Lewis and the other Inklings. Since I have recently made available a room that can be (partly) converted into a library area I now intend to catalogue my books and share anything of interest, but hopefully also to ask questions of the experienced posters on this site.
I look forward to talking to you all!
Firstly, I wonder if anyone could give a view on a Pauline Baynes signature that I acquired recently. (My only signature of her).
The book is Bilbo’s Last Song and it is the smaller blue edition that was published in 2002. It is signed under her printed name on the title. I was told by the vendor that he used to work at Random House Children’s Books and it was given to him as a gift by another employee that worked in the publicity department there and who had been at a book signing.
