Greetings
What do we think of this bookplate?

I read somewhere that JRR used to use initial R when communicating with family and friends etc but this is the first time I have seen a possible bookplate where he has used the R initial.

Do we believe this if JRR? If not who might it be?

If JRR has anyone else seen/own such a bookplate?

Any thoughts ?

wow this sold in less than 30 minutes of going on !
Its nice set for sure but I didnt/wouldnt pay that sort of money

Anyone notice good books being offered less and less over last two months. Got a feeling there will be a mass hit the market in a few months!

It went for £499.
I spotted this book for considerable less before it hit ebay for sale elsewhere. Like the abe books lottery I was 10 minutes too late!!!!!
Rats, darn !

Absolute rubbish.
The seller changes story when asked about the book. Notice description now changed as well - from having the best day of life to keeping it fairly fluffy and non specific - handy!

Hi
The advertised prices for these do vary massively from £5 to crazy £500+.

If it was me trying to sell I would start low and attract some bidders. The problem is these were mass produced and so are really not that rare and in my opinion not that collectible (well at least not for another 30 years).

Sorry to say but i fear you will be lucky to sell for £20.

Hope helps
