Oh, could you possibly send me a better quality picture at some point of the bookplates for putting into the Guide? I hadn't seen those before.

Thanks, and no problem if it's too much effort!

I haven't seen it before. Beyond Bree's "Tolkienalia" does not list it. Perhaps Wayne will weigh in, or another likely source of information would be Sumner Hunnewell.

Evidently it is a promo poster from Ballantine books, I am guessing from the content. Is there a copyright or other fine print you can see? Do you own this, or did you run across one for sale?

If you have access, can you get me more images I can put into the Guide? I like this poster!

What do you guys think of this one?

Signed Beowulf on eBay

It has a nice image of the dedication, so lots of handwriting to see.
