Fascinating - and, no! I didn't see the listing... (goshdarn it). What other books did you buy, may I ask?

As for the bookplate - I guess the monogram could read 'C.J.R.T. ' - though I've never seen one like it.

I have a couple of examples of Michael Hilary's handwriting. They don't look like the jottings you've shown here. Whose are they? I don't know. possibly Christopher's? Or possibly the jottings of Michael George Tolkien, JRRT's grandson? As I say; fascinating stuff!
