It should be contained in the proceedings of the Tolkien 2005 conference, whenever that will be published.

That's intersting. I hope the speech is published in one of the Tolkien Society Publications that come out every now and then.

And now i remember where I saw a similar thing before! Indeed they very much look alike... i'll have to write David Miller and ask some more info and put the two signatures next to each other.

Thnxs for pointing it out!

Beren,

I was looking at the David Miller Items on your site and found this item http://www.tolkienlibrary.com/dmiller/000282.htm

If you look at the picture of the 'signed' Fellowship of the Ring http://www.tolkienlibrary.com/dmiller/images/000282.jpg, it is the same as the 'signed' Farmer Giles of Ham. The illegible scribble above Tolkien's signature according to Mr Miller says 'Yours truly'

Both items look dodgy to me as I am sure that the Professor could write 'Yours truly' so that you could read it.

A dodgy signature from a seller with a history of selling doubtful signatures. They seem to have a suspiciously large range of signatures. I would avoid at all costs. The organisation may have nothing to do with the seller of course.
