Thanks so much for this... I just recall i had a discussion a long long time ago where I was asked to post some examples of Tolkien's autograph done by a secretary... this is a great 'per procurationem' signature

I have seen several like these and this is indeed a secretary signature. Nice letter however. Now I wonder whether Tolkien dictated it, but then why have a secretary sign it in his name? And why use an autograph that 'looks' like Tolkien's but is not. These are peculiar items and highly interesting... thanks for posting!

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.
