Looking at the two signatures and inscriptions side by side I am inclined to think that the cureforcancers one is a copy of the David Miller one. The Miller signature looks ok to me.

A dodgy signature from a seller with a history of selling doubtful signatures. They seem to have a suspiciously large range of signatures. I would avoid at all costs. The organisation may have nothing to do with the seller of course.

Here's another 1963 ROTK in a 1965 jacket.

If anybody spots any 1963 impressions of FOTR and TT in later jackets let me know.

Thanks for all the info. It will go into the melting pot with all the other titbits I have acquired. If anybody else has any of the books mentioned above I would love to hear from you.

Jeremy - I was hoping somebody would come up with a 1963 Impression in a later jacket. In December 1964 A&U asked Jarrolds to re-price all the bound stock, but the correspondence is unclear whether this was by clipping or re-jacketing. It would be nice to find a few more copies though, just to to confirm this...
