|Tolkien Signature in Smith of Wootton Major|
Subject: Tolkien Signature in Smith of Wootton Major
by Beren on 2008/10/24 2:47:34
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!
