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.

I was wondering if someone could help me with this. I recently acquired an older copy of The Return of the King published by Houghton Mifflin. There is no date inside the book, only that it was printed in Great Britain. The dust jacket does have the date "1954" on the back panel. Obviously not a 1954 edition, but was wondering what year it was printed. Any help would be appreciated.
thanks
