Fascinating to see those reproductions of the letters - thanks for that.

Tolkien signed a copy of the India paper LotR (1969) 'To Ding with love from Ronald', and then signed in full 'JRR Tolkien. Ding was the nickname of his cousin Dorothy Wood nee Mountain, daughter of Ronald's Aunt Grace.

Tolkien's personal stationary was Basildon Bond for many years (during late 50's and 60's and possibly later).

I'm interested in anything and everything about Tolkien - I hadn't heard this before, so forgive my asking again - can you tell us where this info comes from?

Can I ask why you say that the letters ought to have a Basildon Bond watermark?
