Signed 1968 UK Paperback LOTR

Subject: Signed 1968 UK Paperback LOTR
by Trotter on 2011/1/2 3:06:24

3 October 1968 Martin Blackman, Allen & Unwin home trade manager, brings to the Hotel Miramar at about 11.00 a.m. one hundred copies of the paperback Lord of the Rings for Tolkien to sign.

The J.R.R. Tolkien Companion and Guide - Chronology (page 733) by Christina Scull & Wayne G. Hammond


I was always under the impression that Tolkien did not do any book signings like modern authors but thanks to Wayne & Christina I now know that he did at least one.

Does anyone know anymore about these books and the use that they were put to by GA&U? I have heard that they were given to staff.
