The second auction image does look a little odd, but the seller will hopefully explain if asked...

Here are a couple of images to compare with:

Image 1

Image 2

authors sister priscilla


Maybe I don't remember well my Father Christmas Letters, or maybe I forgot something about the Tolkiens' family tree, but isn't Priscilla the author's daughter?

Looks good to me although the seller is over-estimating the value a little I think!

Not having a PT signature myself to compare against, what do people think of this auction?

Priscilla Tolkien signed book on eBay

Seems strange to be signed twice to different people, plus the Rosemary signature page has more handwriting on the backside that you can kind of see through the paper. Almost looks like a letter or something (one of the Father Christmas letters?)

I'm not affiliated with the auction at all, just happened to run across it. A bit out of my price range. But it has some really nice large scans of the letter and envelope, for those of you who are assembling handwriting samples to become my resident expert.
