Sorry for the double post - if it were me, I'd take the book along to Sotheby's for evaluation.

Regarding the postcard from behind the fireplace - it wasn't from Tolkien; it was apparently addressed to his wife, (though whether even that is true seemed far from clear, as far as I can recall.)

I hadn't heard that it had actually sold. I wonder how much it went for?

Hello Stephen
Andrews advise is good as there are many very experienced Tolkien collectors who view this site and will give their free expert opinion. In terms of selling there is of course ebay with a world wide audience and private auction houses. Both will take a commision (ebay 10% , auction houses usually 10-20%).

I am sure others will add their thoughts but i personally would auction via ebay with plenty of photos or simply set the figure you are happy with and make item a fixed price if not offay with auction system.

Look forward to viewing pictures

There has been a lot of problems with Fake signatures recently on Tolkien books, the best thing to do would be to take a picture of the page with the signature and also the page showing the printings of the book and it upload them to this site, you have an attach file option available to you.
