Tolkien Signature in Smith of Wootton Major

Subject: Tolkien Signature in Smith of Wootton Major

Here is a fine signature by Tolkien in a first impression of Smith of Wootton Major. Except for the fact that it was purchased in the Oxfam bookstore (at the corner next to Bird & Baby) I have no further info on this item.

So what do you think of the signature? Looks very good to me! Even has a mark of ink on opposite page (closed the book too soon when ink was still wet).

How does a book like this end up in an oxfam shop in Oxford? And how come they did not notice the signature? Did only cost some pence!
