It looks like it was done by an employee of the Oxford University Press, who crossed out the original text and wrote in Tolkien & Gordon's names.

I have not seen anything like this before.

I'm hoping someone may have a little info on this 'card' that was found in a 1st impression of Sir Gawain. A fellow Tolkien Collector asked me if I might have run across one like this, and I have not. He says, 'I ordered a mid-conditioned first (1925) of SIR GAWAIN for my son as a Christmas gift in 2017. It needs some tightening and a few other minor repairs, so I'll leave it for a few weeks with a quality book repair/restoration person. Anyhow, when I opened the book, I found the below 'card'. Printed on a lightweight paper stock , I'm pretty sure both signatures are 'printed' (not original). Still, it's an odd thing. Have you encountered similar 'with compliments' cards for SG? The informality of it - with the crossed out words - interested me (copied below)."

Any thoughts or info would be appreciated,

Yes, thank you. It's always a pleasure to listen to Dr. Shippey. I saw him present at a local university soon after the first Jackson movie was released and he was very informative and entertaining.
