[This was posted as a new thread, but has been merged with a previous related thread - Khamul, 30th Oct.]

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/11076683870 ... AX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423

This item is currently on ebay. Have we seen it before? It looks ok to me, although looks like in pencil.

Any thoughts?

Thank you, garm.

It was good to learn that Hooper cited from what was published as letter 300 - I can see that this letter was written in 1968 so it would indeed have been odd to find it in a 1939 book!

Well, the Loome sale is well documented, but I don't have anything in front of me (Tolkien Collector back issues, etc.) that I am sure Findegil can chime in on when he is around.

As for Marquette, I am just speculating at this point. But it (a) is a Catholic University, which (b) bought a huge pile of Tolkien materials that I am sure they could not keep 100% of, and (c) Loome is just a few hundred miles away from Marquette, and is a well known Catholic specialist bookseller.

So I am just connecting dots at this point. But to be clear, this is just my belief. Hopefully someone has some concrete evidence, before I go emailing Matt at Marquette to bother him with another question.

Still not sure that is a valid Tolkien signature for the eBay auction in question, either.
