The bookplate is very nice - I have one myself, pasted inside a copy of the Methuen edition, bound in blue leather. (Mine has the inscription, in Christopher's hand, 'With gratitude, Christopher Tolkien').

But ths seller's write-up is nonsense. Stating that Christopher and JRR had a bad relationship, and suggesting that CT went ahead and published TS after JRR's death anyway.

It's nothing short of scandalous.

Looks good to me as well.
In fairness this seller did remove the Higgins when he learnt errors of his way.

Is it correct that 200 plates were signed by Christopher as claimed in advert. I too havent ever seen one before and you would have thought that if 200 were done one would have hit the market before now?
Also why wouldnt he have signed the books themselves or have i missed something.


Any thoughts?

Not seen these bookplates before, but it looks okay to me, even though the seller recently tried to pass off a "Higgins" letter.

I have a lot of tea to give.... so "prizes" not "prize".

More stories, please! I am loving this thread.
