Hello collector .Welcome to the forum.
I am sorry but you have missed the point here. We know Tolkien went on holiday to Milford and doctor was Higgins at one stage in life but why would he write letters, not post them and then leave in the loft so his cleaner/ friends could gather just before house was demolished, along with signed books? Or was the signed Hobbit recently sold by said seller a 'sleeper' book- i just cant remeber his story changed that much!
How are you so sure they are original ? You sound very informative ? Have you done deep study on it?

Jlong, if you are skeptical about these "Higgins" you have not too much idea about Tolkiens life. These letters are original. Dr. Higgings was his family doctor and they gone several times on holidays to Milford.
In order to know if a Toliken signature is original you must do a very deep study on it, any other opinion are very frivolous....

Thanks for letting others know of the BB calendar. It's their first since 1994, and they got Tim Kirk to contribute (which I regard as a coup!) As Nancy Martsch noted, proceeds benefit BB. If you don't subscribe, you should. Annual subscription is cheap, but the newsletter has excellent articles and lots of useful info. I ordered my copy last month!
