Re: Books from Tolkien's Personal Library??

I am a former employee at Loome's, but this list was created before my time working there. As a specialist in rare books and manuscripts, I took an interest in some of this material after the fact - although most of it had been scattered to the four winds. After having reviewed a specimen of the material on the Loome's catalogue I have become skeptical as to the authenticity of at least the whole lot. One allegedly signed copy appears definitely to be a forgery to me, but it is possible that authentic material was mingled with inauthentic. My advice would be to have each piece separately authenticated by an expert.
