It's back again on eBay even though it sold in February:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/J-R-R-TOLKIEN ... tible&hash=item48646331f7

Does anyone else have any issue with the stilted/rushed language used in the letter? It just doesn't read like I imagine Tolkien would write, even were he rushed and not much to be bothered. "I have not now got a recorder" for example.

It's the condition of the dust-jacket. Finding one that is essentially new after 75 years (especially on that paper stock) is essentially a one in 100,000 chance. At least according to that bidder, and the person who had the bid just under that.

This one seems to bee the auction mentioned in the article. $100000 without any signature is mad!
