If you don't own this copy and live in the UK, then I highly recommend it.

I do not know this person or if this is actually from Tolkien's library, but I thought it was interesting enough to post here, though the item is not for sale on eBay: http://lasvegas.craigslist.org/clt/3961760723.html

This copy is similar to a copy the Tolkien Library has for sale, but that doesn't mean this other copy for sale is authentic: http://www.tolkienlibrary.com/tolkien-book-store/CLP0213.htm

I'm interested to see what you guys think...

The stickers look okay to me - I have some items myself which have these. As Christina Scull said in her Tolkien Collector essay about this subject; having a label is a fair indication that an item came from Tolkien's library, but the absence of one doesn't mean it didn't!

I have a copy of the 'Losenger' offprint which,, it says here in a pencilled note, came from Tolkien's library. But that doesn't mean that he necessarily looked at this one, or handled it - he'd have been sent some copies to give to colleagues. I expect he might have had a small boxful of these offprints, judging by the amount I've seen for sale over the years.
