Nah, I can't get the other two images to upload. You get the idea...

Thanks for comments guys. It still doesn't seem clear who Michael acquired this from. Yes, Trotter, I've seen all the Michael copies that had from Father, formerly the property of my father Professor J. R. R. Tolkien, from Daddy etc. And, if this was from a family member, it is usually clearer.

I've had a look at all of the notes in more detail. I post the full images here. Two are too large to post unfortunately.

Although they were all sitting in the back of Beowulf by Wyatt & Chambers (Cambridge University Press 1933) [Acquired by MHRT June 1960] --the longest of the notes ('Origin') clearly draws on information (in Chapt. III) from Beowulf: An Introduction by Chambers (Cambridge University Press, 2nd Ed. 1932) [Acquired by MHRT December 1960], the copy marked as from, possibly, Christopher. The two books have obviously lived together for a while, & I'll ask the seller if they know anything surrounding their history.

Interesting to think they might have been written by one of the Tolkien family. All the same, still interesting, even if nobody of note.

I'm glad to see my fanatical Silmarillion acquisition obsession, finally being recognised. Incidentally, in the Recent Visitors section to the left, it still says alpingloin. And, although I haven't gone back & looked at your old posts Elwë, you do now seem to favour, with much regularity, the use of italics...

So Elwë, you're alpingloin?
