With thanks to Mark Hooker, I have discovered the St. Petersburg Tolkien Society, and begun adding them to the Guide database. They publish "Palantir", a fanzine in Russian, but already I have found some treasures in their back issues (all of which are available online in PDF format) such as a good scan of a handwritten Tolkien letter.

I hope someone besides me finds these useful. And if anyone reading has any information on their prior fanzine the "Prancing Pony" I would appreciate any leads. Thanks!

Finding was kind of easy, since RRauction sort of consults me for anything Tolkien related! Which is a nice thing and a big honor for me...

Someone's bid on it, unfortunately. At least it is an open auction so they can be updated.

The seller couldn't even accurately mention where the "signature" is - it is clearly nowhere near on the inner cover.

Whomever did the fake signature at least did enough research to get the date in the realm of possibility, but I can't imagine when the Professor took a trip to a US library to sign a book.
