I'm not sure why Wayne and Christina have not mentioned it here

Modesty, Trotter, sheer modesty! And the desire to have a few posts to our credit before publicizing.

In regard to the photo in our earliest post, for which one must now scroll to the bottom, the books are all foreign-language editions of Tolkien. There are as many shelves of these again on the opposite wall, and still more on the shorter wall to the left and also to the right, out of the picture. The grey archival boxes on top are some of our Tolkien fanzines.

We note that the auction of the 'letter to Mrs Gasch', supposed to end on 18 December, in fact ended early, with no bids, on the 13th.

The 'antique pencil sketch' doesn't appear to be all that 'antique', the style of drawing isn't Tolkien's, let alone typical of his early work, nor is it his signature. Isn't it amazing how much is being found when clearing houses! As for the latest non-signature, it's a less than half-hearted attempt.

That signature is horrible and they didn't even spell the word "guarentee" correctly. I feel like I've seen something like this before.

I'm not sure why Wayne and Christina have not mentioned it here, but they recently started a Blog, which I am sure will be of interest to everyone here.
