Beren,

When I purchased the signature, it was on a scrap piece of the Miramar paper, with a 2nd signature on the same piece. The person that sold it to me said he was keeping the note that came with it, from Tolkien saying he was enclosing two signature for him to stick in his books. So it wasn't cut out of a book or anything like that. Tolkien actually provided the scrap piece of paper along with the letter.

Amazing... I would pay that money only for the jacket! It is long time ago that a copy with original jacket was available at such a price.

Don't mind tipped in signatures when they are genuine... only don't want to think where it was cut out (a book from Tolkien's personal library? a letter?).

Personally, I'm not a fan of tipped in signatures.

There is a way to work out which printing you have but it is a little convoluted. Drop me an email via my website and I'll take you through it.
