You are correct, Tolkien did not sign this item (pp indicates it was signed on behalf of), unfortunately he probably did not see the original letter or reply and it was all handled by his publisher (George Allen and Unwin).

I dont think he actually signed it, just an interesting topic for discussion.

It is not the rarest Tolkien book ever. That would probably be 'Songs for the Philologists'.
And if you think it is the rarest UT edition, have a look at this one:

That's probably the first time I've seen it on eBay...



I've only seen this one a couple of times previously on eBay and fortunately one of the times I won the auction (and at less than this one is currently up for). Incidentally, I bid on this one earlier today and there is someone else that is keen as it went from 36 pounds (if I remember correctly) to sixty-odd pounds before I decided I could live without a second copy! I wouldn't be surprised if this ends up 100+ pounds..
