That does look ok to me (caveat - without having my other samples of her handwriting in front of me). No idea who Isa might be though!

I think about 40 printings of each of the books had Remington's artwork on them, but don't have definitive numbers in front of me. I will try to dig a little deeper.

I have a laminated first edition Bombadil that I will leave alone - given the discoloration, and general paper quality, I don't think there would be much left beyond a pulpy mess if I tried any sort of removal process.

My own personal opinion is that the dustjacket is better laminated (can still see art clearly and it is protected) but I haven't seen a successful removal yet, so it may actually look better if a good job is done. Either way, I don't think it would be anything near "very good" condition, and thus there's no real benefit to the removal except personal preference for aesthetics.
