What a magnificent piece of art!:

http://cgi.benl.ebay.be/Sauron-art-print-lord-the-rings-jrr-tolkien-5x7-/180613151948?pt=Art_Prints&hash=item2a0d61fccc#ht_500wt_1156

The abstract rendering of Sauron and the highly detailed Frodo(?)-figure: surely this must be the work of a master! The symbolism and emotions just drop off the painting. And then I haven't talked about the colours yet!
Too bad it's just a print...

Khamul,

The reason for the recent visitor section still saying 'Alpingloin' is that I am able to change my display name in the account settings, but not my actual user name (login name). Maybe Urulókë can help me straighten this out.

P.S. Not exactly sure about the increased usage of italics. Now that you mention it, though, I have been feeling a little slanty lately.

I have edited my earlier post to include the fact that their are at least two fake letters in existence.

If you were to accept that the letters are real (by ignoring all the evidence) then why would Tolkien sign both copies, he would only send one to Pauline.

Thanks for comments guys. It still doesn't seem clear who Michael acquired this from. Yes, Trotter, I've seen all the Michael copies that had from Father, formerly the property of my father Professor J. R. R. Tolkien, from Daddy etc. And, if this was from a family member, it is usually clearer.

I've had a look at all of the notes in more detail. I post the full images here. Two are too large to post unfortunately.

Although they were all sitting in the back of Beowulf by Wyatt & Chambers (Cambridge University Press 1933) [Acquired by MHRT June 1960] --the longest of the notes ('Origin') clearly draws on information (in Chapt. III) from Beowulf: An Introduction by Chambers (Cambridge University Press, 2nd Ed. 1932) [Acquired by MHRT December 1960], the copy marked as from, possibly, Christopher. The two books have obviously lived together for a while, & I'll ask the seller if they know anything surrounding their history.

Interesting to think they might have been written by one of the Tolkien family. All the same, still interesting, even if nobody of note.
