I believe the gent said he was studying at Oxford in the sixties, when he attended lectures by Tolkien. We know that JRR retired in 1959, but I've heard or read that he stood in for his successor now and again.
Interesting, so getting the book from Tolkien may also not be true.

When first we practise to deceive!"
