I have created a separate forum for discussions of signatures/autographs and other handwriting samples, since I was having a hard time myself figuring out the best place to discuss these in the older forums - sometimes they were on books, sometimes on letters, etc.

I have moved some of the older discussions to the new forum, and will do a full pass later this week for archival purposes.

Let me know if you have any questions, comments, etc.

This is a Smith of Wootton Major with a "signed bookplate". The signature itself looks okay to me (though it is a very small image), but I swear I have seen that exact pattern of ink smearing before - perhaps this is a copy, or I have seen copies of this? Anyone else?

Well, I must confess to not having read 'The History of Middle Earth,' in its entirety. I have only gotten through pieces of it, but enough to have known of 'Trotter.' It is a clever screen name and I like it. Mine is bit more lame, however. Growing up in the Rocky Mountains, and loving the sunsets and 'alpinglow' that you get on the mountain sides in the evening is what led to my name. I really have no particular affection for the Dwarves, but 'Gloin' just sort of fit.

Anyway, it is indeed funny to think of a Hobbit Ranger named 'Trotter,' with the clickety-clack sound of his wooden shoes, fighting off wraiths at Weathertop. What about the name, 'Fosco?'

Indeed it does. I assumed that the regular members of this board would all know where the name Trotter comes from, having all read the History of Middle-Earth volumes that deal with the History of the Lord of the Rings.

Although I use this name I am glad that Tolkien changed the character to Strider, I don't think a Hobbit Ranger who wore boots has the same gravitas as Strider does in the finished book.

I think I started this topic mostly out of my frustration trying to obtain a copy for myself. I would love to get my hands on one, but I don't see myself ever being able to justify paying $2000+.

Also, Trotter, I am not sure why I never got this before, but I think I finally understand your screen name. Does it have anything to do with Strider?
