Thanks for that quote garm. Makes me wish those two would get cracking on those old back issues of TC!

According to Scull (Christina Scull, that is; aka Mrs Findegil) - the signature was

'printed by letterpress, and is indented into the paper, as if it might have been written by a pen. In fact the practice of printing signatures below frontispiece portraits is quite old...'
('Signatures, labels and values', by Christina Scull, The Tolkien Collector no.15, Feb. 1997. p.18)


I seem to have a rare, un-indented copy. Oh, well..

Heh! I was just on his website and found your reply waiting for me when I got back here. Thanks to both of you!

Interestingly (to me) there is actually an indentation of the signature to the verso of the frontispiece on the copy I just got, and it is uneven (deeper on some strokes than others). Makes me wonder what sort of printing process they used - were these stamped on? Or did someone trace the signature off of this particular copy?

It is on Deagol's web site in his article "Facsimile Signatures
(Nasty Tricksy Hobbits)
". There is a faux printed signature under the Pamela Chandler picture.
