I have no problem with a signature that has been lain in, but I think almost everyone would agree that they would prefer to own an item that has actually been signed in the book.

Cool item, nonetheless, but way above my price range as well...

Cool... so that is where that signature went to. I know this letter and always wondered what happened to it. So now that is wonderful news. Thanks for letting us know.

I wonder whether this jacket was added later? I mean; a book with a jacket wouldn't have such a faded spine, would it?

Apart from that, the faults don't look as bad as the description suggests (though I'm not keen on the brown staining as shown in the photos). It'll be interesting to see how this sale goes. Just to say - I shan't be bidding! (well out of my league).

ps - I've got nothing against inserted signatures...

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.
