Re: Another 'signed' book on Ebay

Hi Khamul -

In the US, a crayon is a stick of colored wax (and the best known maker is Crayola.) These are mostly used by children in coloring books where they color in the trees green and the sky blue, etc. In French, crayon is a pencil. So I was wondering if crayon is not in this instance a colored pencil. In any case, £20K is MORE than a bit steep for such a book with or without this provenance. I have an inscribed and signed JRRT calendar that you can view on my website. As it is probably one of the last articles that the master ever signed, I think it invaluable and would not ever sell it.

Away from The Green Hill Country,
