Point taken - nevertheless, if one looks up 'hobbit' on ebay, one finds a terrific amount of sheer tat which has nothing to do with hobbits, or JRR. And that sort of thing gets up my nose.

And guess where they all originate?

Garm,

While I am not exactly proud of everything that goes on in the United States (especially in our government), I still hate to hear such generalizations. I guarantee I can find serious morons for you in just about every corner of our planet - and plenty of them are trying to capitalize on someone else's accomplishments (like this particular 'Hobbit Tree' woman).

But I guess stereotypes exist for a reason, right?

Thanks Wayne & Chistina
I took a punt and brought it. I knew it had come from the son of the driver and with a few enquiries as well I was fairly confident (although I did miss the letters entry) it was genuine.
Awaiting its arrival. I always said I wouldnt bow to buying signature as overpriced but there you go.

CANT WAIT!

The latest (which went unsold, with no bids) is a standard Allen & Unwin internal memo of the period. We've seen many examples. Nor do we have any problem with the signature and date on the verso being in Tolkien's hand. The event to which Tolkien was driven on 14 July 1972, at the Allen & Unwin offices and warehouses at Hemel Hempstead, is mentioned in our Chronology, p. 765, and in Letters, p. 421.

I hav been watching these posts with interest and agree with a number of others that Mr Burns post is an interesting contribution and merits the prize.
