Wonderfull... just wonderfull. Maybe one day i'll be able to write a good book about conservation. It is after all my profession and what I was educated in. Now days I no longer work as a restorer or conservator (had to stop because of problems with the chemicals i was using) but the knowledge is still here!

Christina and Wayne were kind enough to give permission to reprint their article about caring for their collection from The Tolkien Collector, so that is the first of (hopefully) many useful articles for collectors. Please let me know of any other articles, topics, or leads that you would like me to pursue, I would like the Articles section to become a core part of the website.

Caring For Your Tolkien Collection, by Christina Scull & Wayne G. Hammond.

Seller seems nice enough. The second signature/dedication is on a loose sheet of stationery laid in, with a third signature on the back ("Mary Dentry" he thinks) dated 1974. Sounds like "Cookie" was gathering autographs, possibly at an event of some sort. The current seller bought the book at a bookfair in 2002, so he doesn't have much provenance on it, but I think the signatures look reasonable.

The second auction image does look a little odd, but the seller will hopefully explain if asked...

Here are a couple of images to compare with:
