Hmmm, yes, I do seem to have mis-read the date there!

Would this be from a certain Menu, whose current owner I can not remember

This is a Tolkien signature from 1914 - you can see it in John Garth's recent Exeter College booklet.

Not his signature and as it was first written as Tolkeen and changed to Tolkien probably not written by him either....

(It dates from his time at Exeter College. 0/10 for your maths homework Khamul! )

This is the ledger for the shoe shop, the clerks would have filled this in, not customers. It is probably a record that the young Tolkien owed them some money (looking at it again its states Paid 1st April 1914)

Even though Tolkien bought football boots I expect he used them for playing Rugby.
