signed smith of wootton major
Just popping in
I have just stumbled upon a book that was missing in the family for years.
My great Aunt was given it by Tolkien when she was a nurse for him at some point.
It is a copy of "Smith of wootton major" and the inscribed words are.." to nurse Beaton" and then signed by Tolkien.
I launched a hunt for this book about a year ago after reading that a guy sold a postcard signed by Tolkien was found at the back of a fireplace.
The Aunt that he gave it to died about 4 years ago and no one knew where the book was.
Turned up last week at her sisters house in a back room.
Is it worth much? and where is the best place to contact to sell it?
Any help would be appreciated.
