The letter is quoted on page 772 of Wayne and Christina's Companion and Guide, and was to James A.H. Murray, grandson of Sir James A.H. Murray of the Oxford English Dictionary.

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...
