I had seen it... but someone outbid me ;) - and I did not feel to go and bid against my fellow Tolkien friends!

Congratulations Khumul,

I also bidded on this item. I am glad you were the one to outbid me. Although the pictures you have posted are making me wish I had gone after the book with a higher bid, but I was torn between this book and anotheritem at the same time.

I have a second printing of Tom Bombadil signed by Michael Tolkien and a small inscription, but it doesn't look anything like the examples that you have shown.

Does anyone have examples of Christopher's handwritting to compare?

What about John Francis Tolkien? I see the J, the F and the T so I guess this is quite a possible solution?

I have a handful of books from Fr. John's library. One of them has a monogram, but it doesn't look like the one on Khamul's book. The top bar of the 'F' is above the bar of the 'T', in order to make it distinct.
