I haven't heardof the book myself, but I suppose it's an anthology of pieces by former pupils fo the Dragon School in Oxford. Christopher went there. Didn't know Emma Watson went there, though. Google Old Dragons; Wiki has something on it. I expect you'll find something on the Dragon School website, too.

Yes, Lewis's _Collected Letters_ contains only letters written by Lewis. There's one to Tolkien in Volume 2; the one where Lewis praises LotR - 'Uton herian holbytlas', etc. (Oct. 27, 1949). Another is to be found in Vol.3.

Reading Lewis's letters can never be said to be a waste; there's a lot of good stuff in there. And there's quite a few mentions of Tolkien throughout the three volumes. But I can't sift through the great mass to find snippets of what might be letters from T. to L. A better bet, for my money, is Scull and Hammond's two-volume 'JRR Tolkien: A Companion and Guide_ which has parts of many previously unpublished letters - from auction catalogues, for example - and also select extracts from Tolkien's diary. All in all - a must!

Hoo boy - that's a good one!

*thinks - I have several real photos of Tolkien, from a news agency. I wonders how much they might be worth? (rubs hands)

Apparently it's a genuine signature of one 'J.R. Tolkein'.
