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.
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.
