Some nice items from Carl... he mentioned to me that 10% of whatever the sale price is will go to Catholic Relief Services.

I dropped a note to the seller earlier today, and she was very gracious in her response and quickly pulled the listing. Just a case of innocent excitement without research I guess.

I wouldn't be surprised if the book gets back on eBay sooner or later when someone else sees the signature and the cycle repeats.

The following question has been posed on the MythSoc mailing list - does it trigger anyone's memories of something you've read?

>First, when discussing the Inklings in her most recent lecture (which
>by the way drew heavily on Diana's book, which she praised by name),
>she told of an occasion when Tolkien and Williams happened to be
>lecturing at the same time and said that Williams drew a huge crowd,
>while the only person to attend Tolkien's lecture was the official
>note-taker. I don't remember ever having heard this story before, nor
>that there is any such thing as an 'official note-taker' at Oxford,
>never mind the fact that it was Tolkien himself who arranged for
>Williams to give lectures and set the schedule. Has anyone else come
>across this incident?

dunedain8 is David Miller (The Tolkien Bookshelf at ABEBooks). Also one of the sellers that lists with Beren at tolkienlibrary.com.

He's certainly aware of this site, but I don't think he posts.
