Apologies for mixing up years (or conferences) there - should have checked old correspondence and fora (some no longer available, however).

As for Unquendor's Lustrum, matters are still in a very preliminary state - we're just about trying see if we can get an organising committee together in the next half year.

A pre-registration leaflet for Loughborough 2012 was in the Oxonmoot 2008 registration pack last weekend.

I should have checked chronology, but did not find it at first glance.

I had this mental picture of him wandering around his library, looking for the book amongst the shelves...

(Yes, I know what you were really saying Beren, but I still wanted to share. )

I had exactly the same picture as Rowns (it could easily happen in Beren's library!), even when knowing, like Rowns, that Beren meant something else.

I also have loved this spirited discussion!

And I must say, when Beren said this

This has certainly been an interesting discussion. It illustrates how important provenance is and how difficult it can be verifying a signature for collectors without provenance.

It is certainly a worry when considering not only the money that is involved with buying an item of this sort and after following this discussion my opinion has been swayed by arguements for and against.

My other concern is that if even one of these items (or others) is a fake, it may enter into the field of Tolkien Studies as genuine and its contents misleading us.

Thankfully we do have people who have a lot of experence with Tolkien's documents who are willing to offer their advice.
Thanks
