Whoa! Out of my league!

(I think I might have some idea of who the letter might be to, though. But I'll keep shtum).

Gosh, I'm sorry to hear you have to sell some of your collection. I certainly wouldn't want to part with a 1st ed. Two Towers. I shall probably pop in a bid, but I'm not hopeful. Things like this are out of my league.

Good luck with your sales.

I'd have guessed buckram. Shows what I know. But it's not paper; Hammond says 'bound in black cloth over boards'.
(Bibliography; p.51)

This book was listed for sale for years by an Oxfordshire bookshop. The owner asked me who SRT might be; he thought it might have been S.R.T.O. (Simonne) d'Ardenne, but I replied I wasn't so sure. (I'm pretty sure the signature isn't Tolkien's, either. Since when did he sign his name with only one 'R'?)

As it happens, a glance at the Scull-Hammond Chronology shows that Tolkien didn't become d'Ardenne's supervisor until 1932. So, it ain't her!
