I have several books from the library of Michael, and a few more from that of Father John. The sig. in the second book certainly looks like his, from around that time.

Now that I have got most of my Tolkien books into one room, I have come across the following two book inscriptions.

They are both written, I believe, by Michael Tolkien, son of JRR, and are of particular interest to me for two reasons. Firstly, they come around the period when JRR stayed at Michael’s house to complete the writing of LOTR. Secondly, because Woodcote is a pretty little Oxfordshire village which I know very well!

The second inscription with Joan’s name is also interesting because the book was clearly a Christmas present to her with the gift tag glued into the book, stating ‘from John to Joan, Christmas 1949’.

I wonder if anyone would have a view as to the identity of John? It does not look much like the 1977 signature of John Tolkien posted in this forum, but that is nearly 30 years later.

I completely agree, if only I was a serious buyer.

We are happy to provide photos and additional information for SERIOUS BUYERS ONLY.

I have a brand new, shrinkwrapped copy of the folio hobbit for sale - £20 including UK delivery, or will consider swap for something of similar value (all offers considered!) Please just PM me. I bought it as I quite liked the idea of keeping a sealed copy of everything, but now just fancy getting something else!
