Take a look here:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Return-of-the-K ... 87ff&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14

- particularly at the 'provenance'. Apart from the iffy connection (if any) between Tolkien and this 'Rathbone', - Tolkien is said to have had dealings with Trinity college, and also Hilary college. Since when has there been a Hilary college at Oxford?

Obviously the vendor has mistaken the names of two of Oxford's terms (Michaelmas; Hilary; Trinity) for the names of colleges. It just happens to be a coincidence that there's also a college called Trinity.

But, this whole piece is bunk! And possibly meant to deceive? What do others think?

Thanks, Andrew.

On another note; can you tell us whether 'Tolkien Studies 6' will be on sale this year? I'm having difficulty in tracking down a copy

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 -

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Wedding-Album-S ... 7e56&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14

- 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.
