Michael tends to write in his book the name of who gave it to him (in the MHRT book that I have, he wrote it was from Daddy), so I think he did the monogram and it represents Christopher.

I have a handful of books from Fr. John's library. One of them has a monogram, but it doesn't look like the one on Khamul's book. The top bar of the 'F' is above the bar of the 'T', in order to make it distinct.

What about John Francis Tolkien? I see the J, the F and the T so I guess this is quite a possible solution?

Congratulations Khumul,

I also bidded on this item. I am glad you were the one to outbid me. Although the pictures you have posted are making me wish I had gone after the book with a higher bid, but I was torn between this book and anotheritem at the same time.

I have a second printing of Tom Bombadil signed by Michael Tolkien and a small inscription, but it doesn't look anything like the examples that you have shown.

Does anyone have examples of Christopher's handwritting to compare?

Dior

I had seen it... but someone outbid me ;) - and I did not feel to go and bid against my fellow Tolkien friends!
