Tolkien, J.R.R (1892-1973) a signed letter dated 1963 on Sandfield Road headed paper, with a photograph and ephemera (parcel) £80-100

http://www.richardwinterton.co.uk/sale_dates.htm

Probably one of the most pathetic auction catalogues I've ever seen:

Estimated price £80-100! That's absurdely low for a handwritten letter (if it's the same as the excerpt shown on Winterton's website). I would gladly have tried my luck on it, but it seems like you have to physically be there during the auction..?

Will anyone here be placing a bid?

Thank you for the link, I'll make a vain attempt (although I guess I won't be the only one!).
