I have recently brought a signed Silmarillion after many years of hunting.

Inside was a slip of paper dated Sept 1977 to sellers father who used to work for GA&U asking him to pay £2.48 for the signed copy.

From this it is safe to assume signed copies were sold to staff at the time.

Has anyone any idea how many of these were signed in this manner for publishers staff? .

Has anyone else got such a slip in there signed copies?

Thanks

The wording is the key to it
'inserted'

ie what the seller is trying to suggest is that the books werent signed yet the pictures were.

of course they were !!
