Wow! "Very collectible Tolkien first printing" Here is a real rarity; only $150, but unfortunately it also has a reserve. Only $300 if you want to buy it now. :)

Thanks, Andrew.

On another note; can you tell us whether 'Tolkien Studies 6' will be on sale this year? I'm having difficulty in tracking down a copy

Looking back on this old(ish) thread, I see I forgot to mention that Tolkien would also sign with initials only;

To K.S. with greeting from J.R.R.T

and

M.E.G. from J.R.R.T

- both on copies of 'Beowulf: the Monsters and the Critics'. The first is to the man who taught him Anglo-Saxon at Oxford, Kenneth Sisam. The second is to his pupil Elaine Griffiths, who was instrumental in the publication of TH.

These copies would have been signed in July 1937; that is, only a couple of months before the publication of TH.

No provenance as usual but also I have never seen a real signature where Tolkien signed directly under his printed name.
