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.

Not having a PT signature myself to compare against, what do people think of this auction?

Priscilla Tolkien signed book on eBay

Seems strange to be signed twice to different people, plus the Rosemary signature page has more handwriting on the backside that you can kind of see through the paper. Almost looks like a letter or something (one of the Father Christmas letters?)

I'm not affiliated with the auction at all, just happened to run across it. A bit out of my price range. But it has some really nice large scans of the letter and envelope, for those of you who are assembling handwriting samples to become my resident expert.

Thanks Deagol!

Every little bit helps. I'll put some time in tonight getting pages up for everything you listed. Is that info coming from your collection? Just curious.
