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...

Just follow my link garm, in the original post (the word "eBay" is the link)...

There are three or four other loose sheets, one full A4 running to both sides. I only posted this jotting because (although obviously not) it looks vaguely Tolkien-esque in style. However, it clearly isn't Michael's handwriting; & the notes are not in the copy marked as (possibly) from Christopher. Although the other copy is also a Michael bookplate copy. Garm, the books are just the two in the eBay listing...

I just bought a few MHRT books off eBay; I'm sure others saw the listing. Nothing unusual. Just wondered if others had seen the little symbol (top right corner) on MHRT bookplate(s) before? And, the meaning: from CT? (--as the seller claimed.)

Additionally, other than the bookplates, I'm not familiar with Michael Tolkien's handwriting. There are many notes throughout (not uncommon with this type of book), and several loose jottings. I've posted one of these. I have no reason to think these are Michael's, but just thought I'd seek opinions. He obviously saw fit to keep them with the book in any case.
