According to Scull (Christina Scull, that is; aka Mrs Findegil) - the signature was

'printed by letterpress, and is indented into the paper, as if it might have been written by a pen. In fact the practice of printing signatures below frontispiece portraits is quite old...'
('Signatures, labels and values', by Christina Scull, The Tolkien Collector no.15, Feb. 1997. p.18)


I seem to have a rare, un-indented copy. Oh, well..
