Re: Books from Tolkien's Personal Library??

I don't mean any disrespect to David Miller, but I think it's rather sad that people butcher books, removing inscriptions in order to paste them into other books purely make a fast dollar. It ruins the original book and the volume that receives the completely-out-of-context transplant is barely more genuine than if I had written the inscription myself. Obviously, the owner of a thing has the right to do anything they like with it, but it still strikes me as needlessly destructive...

As for the "[JRRT]", looks like anyone could have written it (but I am not an expert)...
