You are correct, Tolkien did not sign this item (pp indicates it was signed on behalf of), unfortunately he probably did not see the original letter or reply and it was all handled by his publisher (George Allen and Unwin).

Is the signature typed or hand-written?

Melvyn Bragg investigates how the written word, a technology originally used for accountancy, gave rise to all of human literature. He charts the emergence of poetry and history writing in the ancient world, inspects an ancient Egyptian precursor to Hamlet, and discovers how Greek literary traditions reached this country in the Middle Ages.

Producer: Thomas Morris.

Tolkien was nominated by C.S.Lewis for the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1961, turned down, what a surprise, because he was 'rubbish' at prose in the Lord of the Rings, what nonsense
