Andrew,

Email me at Gondor59@aol.com and I'll send you a clearer image.

Jim.

Here is an image of the centerpiece of my Tolkien collection. This is a letter typed and signed by Tolkien to a little girl in 1964. The little girl was Lisa Gell-mann, daughter of Murray Gell-mann (the 1969 Nobel Prize winner in physics). I contacted Dr. Gell-mann about this letter and he actually responded to me saying his daughter had lost the letter at Princeton University in the late sixties. I bought the letter from a person who found it in a box in an attic at Princeton several years ago. The letter is on Tolkien's private Basildon Bond stationary and includes the original post marked envelope.

I'm glad I discovered this forum as I was one of the bidders for this item and was going to try to win it in the morning. Just curious, but what is it about the signature that raises alarm bells?

Thanks, Jim.
