Michael tends to write in his book the name of who gave it to him (in the MHRT book that I have, he wrote it was from Daddy), so I think he did the monogram and it represents Christopher.

The thing that gave it away for me was that Tolkien had not signed the map and the postcards as well, schoolboy error.

I know that Tolkien owned a Morris car in his early life, but we have conclusive proof that he also owned one of these (to get to the year 2000 for book signings).

I'm still interested in working out when HarperCollins will sell out of this book, but am amazed that they allocate the numbers (out of 500) at random, when you buy the book.

Elwë recently sold #490 on eBay and bruffyboy in his blog (http://collectingtolkien.blogspot.com ... super-deluxe-edition.html) bought #379 from HarperCollins last year. I just bought another copy from them (with the 30% discount) and got #254 this week.

Beren was asking for questions for David Brawn, one must be that for future limited editions, buyers expect some consistency in distributing the editions, but this does not appear to happen!

It refers to Royd Tolkien, great grandson of J.R.R.

It has even more of a resemblance to this fake item from cavorite51

http://cgi.ebay.com/Personal-Letter-J ... tible&hash=item2eb24eb41c

as it is the same letter.

I have sent an email in spanish translated by Google informing them of the problem with the letter.

Thanks for finding this criatura. If you could contact them as well that would be useful.

Regards

Andrew

EDIT

I have just noticed that it is not the same letter as the cavorite51 (original fake below), this looks like a second go at faking the letter, as it does not have so many mistakes (though Oxford is spelled incorrectly) and it has been distressed more than the first letter. The date has also been removed from the second fake.
