My copy of the HC Deluxe LR (bought about a year ago) is a 2nd printing, it has the additional corrections (including Fréaláf, hamfæst, swift falcon) and the right Ring inscription, but still the old index.

It's a questionable signature, the portion of text reveals nothing about style and little of use for comparing the typeface to attested Tolkien typed letters, and we found no instance of his having used "Very truly yours" as a closing in a spot-check of our Tolkien correspondence files.

The signature looks pretty bad to me and seems rather suspect given that it was evidently taken from a letter. Where is the rest of the letter? "COA ISSUED BY MY COMPANY" seems like a worthless piece of paper. I won't be bidding on it.

Hello all
I know Christmas but when anyone gets a minute what are your views on this item.
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dl ... &ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT

The photo was orignally very poor but now seller has added some more . Not had reply about who where and when obtained.

Of course rest of letter would have helped !

Thanks
