Here is what he sent me:

Dear tolkien_hunter,

Hello and thank you for your interest in our auction. We are selling this book on behalf of the daughter of the recipient of the dedication/signature. He was a student at Oxford in the late 50's. I hope this helps.

I replied to him that this was not enough info. Someone will spend thousands of dollars on this tough. I wish people would just not buy signed work without good provenance so the markey for fakes would go away.

Hi,

Im new to collecting tolkien books but Im a life long tolkien fan.

Im curious to hear what other people collect? I guess Im in the "completist" mode in that I would want every unique edition of JRRT's writting, not just early printings and collector's editions.

How about you? Is their a theme or focus to what you collect?
