Hi,
I have just stumbled upon a book that was missing in the family for years.

My great Aunt was given it by Tolkien when she was a nurse for him at some point.
It is a copy of "Smith of wootton major" and the inscribed words are.." to nurse Beaton" and then signed by Tolkien.

I launched a hunt for this book about a year ago after reading that a guy sold a postcard signed by Tolkien was found at the back of a fireplace.

The Aunt that he gave it to died about 4 years ago and no one knew where the book was.
Turned up last week at her sisters house in a back room.

Is it worth much? and where is the best place to contact to sell it?
Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.. Stephen

I would be annoyed as well. I tried hard to include all of the regulars, but then the database hiccup ruined my first impressions with you all. Sorry!

If we get slightly better organized, we can ask to become a smial of The Tolkien Society, or a discussion group of The Mythopoeic Society. (If there are other organizations we want to be a part of, please mention them here!)

You can vote for more than one choice. Please be logged in when you vote as user votes will count more than anonymous votes (though those will have weight as well).

Works for me.

I'm not so much worried about private discussion of fakes, just find being told I'm not allowed particularly annoying!!
