This is the ledger for the shoe shop, the clerks would have filled this in, not customers. It is probably a record that the young Tolkien owed them some money (looking at it again its states Paid 1st April 1914)

Even though Tolkien bought football boots I expect he used them for playing Rugby.

The date looks to be 1912, so Tolkien would have been 20, I don't think that is his signature though as there is no COA :)

I would recommend that anyone does some due diligence on this item if they are thinking of bidding on it.

eBay Item #281555591274

The seller states "Comes with a certificate of authenticity for peace of mind", I must say it does not give me any peace of mind. I can't read the signature, Tolkien's name is spelt wrong and the company that has supposedly authenticated this (Unique Autographs inc.) has no presence on the Internet.

I think it may useful to give some information on the books that you show in the video text, for the three so far, why not include the page from www.tolkienbooks.net about those editions.

Ignore this you have to click on Show more to get it.

Lyni,

Some of members do collect calendars, and one Parmastahir has a website devoted to them, http://www.tolkiencalendars.com/

This is the description for your NZ Calendar

"1976 George Allen & Unwin (New Zealand)

ISBN: 0 04 529002 4
VARIANT: “The Hobbit Calendar 1976” Illustrations by Professor Tolkien; colored by H. E. Riddett. Dimensions: 13 x 12.5 inches (w x h); stapled; light-weight, white paperboard mailer printed with theme similar to the cover of the calendar.

Rarity: 9 Has appeared on eBay three times that I know of. As a commercial issue, assume that there are more "out there". But collecting issues from New Zealand is very difficult. (x)
"

Hopefully someone will be interested :)
