Looking back on this old(ish) thread, I see I forgot to mention that Tolkien would also sign with initials only;

To K.S. with greeting from J.R.R.T

and

M.E.G. from J.R.R.T

- both on copies of 'Beowulf: the Monsters and the Critics'. The first is to the man who taught him Anglo-Saxon at Oxford, Kenneth Sisam. The second is to his pupil Elaine Griffiths, who was instrumental in the publication of TH.

These copies would have been signed in July 1937; that is, only a couple of months before the publication of TH.

Look here -

- would anyone care to hazard a guess as to what possible connection this thing may have with Tolkien?

I don't claim to be a completist - but I do have several areas of interest in collecting, aside from the mainstream stuff; for instance I enjoy collecting Tolkien's contributions to academic journals and poetry collections. My collection has a good range of items; beginning with 'Oxford Poetry 1915' and several titles from the 20s onwards.

I have all of those except Tolkien's Middle-Earth & Monsters. Hmm, that's irritating... >grin< - now I'll have to find one.

However, my total also comes to six because I have in addition 'The Brothers Hildebrandt - Their Tolkien Art'(Running Press, 2001).

Twelve postcards; and, they're magnetic!

The vendor does say he's open to 'sensible offers'. My copy cost £10.00, but that was a long time ago. ..
