Wow! "Very collectible Tolkien first printing" Here is a real rarity; only $150, but unfortunately it also has a reserve. Only $300 if you want to buy it now. :)

Thanks, Andrew.

On another note; can you tell us whether 'Tolkien Studies 6' will be on sale this year? I'm having difficulty in tracking down a copy

Looking back on this old(ish) thread, I see I forgot to mention that Tolkien would also sign with initials only;

To K.S. with greeting from J.R.R.T

and

M.E.G. from J.R.R.T

- both on copies of 'Beowulf: the Monsters and the Critics'. The first is to the man who taught him Anglo-Saxon at Oxford, Kenneth Sisam. The second is to his pupil Elaine Griffiths, who was instrumental in the publication of TH.

These copies would have been signed in July 1937; that is, only a couple of months before the publication of TH.

No provenance as usual but also I have never seen a real signature where Tolkien signed directly under his printed name.

The Tolkien Estate have settled with New Line (Warner).

Associated Press Statement

Christopher Tolkien is quoted as saying:

"The Trustees regret that legal action was necessary, but are glad that this dispute has been settled on satisfactory terms that will allow the Tolkien Trust properly to pursue its charitable objectives. The Trustees acknowledge that New Line may now proceed with its proposed films of 'The Hobbit.'"
