The UK spelling of cheque is used in the letter on the left, so I agree that it is very surprising that the US spelling check is in use in the right letter. I am sure that Joy Hill would not type cheque as check.

There is also nothing really tying these letters to this copy of the book, the letters refer to a signed US copy but they are reproductions and how do we know it is this copy that is referred to?

I was also curious about the publishing date on the book. I would have thought that would have been after 1973, probably 1975 or there abouts. Anyone else have a better date? The signature looks good, but something doesn't seem right. I also agree on the check vs cheque, a little unusual at best.

Yes, I went; and sadly, there were no posters like that for sale. Shame, really. All we got was a 4-page handout; listing what was on display, with brief write-up on Tolkien on the front page and an equally brief chronology of his life and works on the back page. Nothing fancy.

I don't think these were posters but would love to be proved wrong

Did anyone go to world reading day on March 4th?

Were they selling posters (see below)?
