The stickers look okay to me - I have some items myself which have these. As Christina Scull said in her Tolkien Collector essay about this subject; having a label is a fair indication that an item came from Tolkien's library, but the absence of one doesn't mean it didn't!

I have a copy of the 'Losenger' offprint which,, it says here in a pencilled note, came from Tolkien's library. But that doesn't mean that he necessarily looked at this one, or handled it - he'd have been sent some copies to give to colleagues. I expect he might have had a small boxful of these offprints, judging by the amount I've seen for sale over the years.

Generally speaking, those engaged in academic research contact their library rather than asking folk to post copyrighted material on the net. I did.

It's actually a sixth imp. FotR. The real fifth imp. is dated February 1956.
