Greetings!

Well, it never rains but it pours! Here are a couple of news items that I thought folks would like to know about. Information about both of these is also posted on my website at http://www.JefMurray.com

- The Tolkien Library (http://www.TolkienLibrary.com ) has just posted an extensive interview that Pieter Collier and I had on the development of the illustrations for "Black & White Ogre Country: The Lost Tales of Hilary Tolkien". You can read the interview, which also includes a few of the illustrations from the book, at: http://www.tolkienlibrary.com/pres/85 ... nd_White_Ogre_Counrty.php

- The second issue of Silver Leaves, the journal of the White Tree Fund (see http://www.whitetreefund.org ) is now out. It focuses on the Inklings, and somewhat more specifically on C.S. Lewis than the other members of that august society. The editors of the journal kindly used several of my Narnia-inspired paintings to complement the other illustrations in the issue. Please take a look!

My February newsletter should also be out in a week or so, and there should be some additional newsworthy items included in it!

Nai i Cala oio-siluva (may the Light ever-shine)

We've just got back from the book launch - picked up four copies (all dedicated by Angie), and ordered our deluxe copy (numbers are being allocated quickly!)

Eric the Red, here is a copy of The Lost Road (1st, 1st) for $25. Looks like it is in pretty good condition for the price. This volume took me the longest time to secure for a decent price when I was putting my set of American HoMe together.

Does anyone have any idea when the back issues of The Tolkien Collector are going to be available?

I don't see any problem what so ever in this signature... it looks very fine to me. It does not all resemble the blue pen autographs that David pulled out; but it made him more cautious I believe... hence the description.

Buying and selling autograpgs is a tricky business and if you want perfect provenance, you will have to pay 'big' bucks. Signatures at this price never come with any provenance... the only thing you can do is have some expert look at it; and even the biggest expert will not give you 100% garantee... Since something can look ugly, and still be genuine, and the opposite is true as well. Tolkien however has some elements in the autograph that are so 'Tolkien' and are hard to fake...

To make a long story short... I believe this to be a fine autograph by Tolkien for not a bad price, seen there is no provenance coming with the book.

Also I believe we have to give David some credit... he was writing about Tolkien and buying / selling Tolkien before most of us started. He is a great dealer and has a no questions asked return policy, perfect handling and years of experience as a bookdealer.
