Very nice handwritten letter to Pauline Baynes up for sale at Christie's. Dated 1949, talks about Farmer Giles proofs of her artwork, and the possibility of her illustrating the next big project he is working on ("a long romance in sequel to "The Hobbit" ").

Est. £3000 - £4000

Sale date is July 3, 2007 at the London, King Street auction house.

I have added an article to the database for Bloomsbury Auctions results over the past few years (going back to late 1998).

Bloomsbury Auctions article

I hope to add similar data pages for Bonhams, Christie's, Sotheby's and other auction houses as time permits.

Useful? Better way to organize the data? Let me know!

Ah yes, I had forgotten that (though it has come up recently on the MythSoc discussion forum, so I should have remembered! Sleep deprivation most likely excuse.)

It looks good.
Christopher was at Mythcon in 87.
