Ok, So I am a huge Tolkien fan and at 31 years old I have an impressive collection. I live in the U.K but my Mom's brother lives in California (emigrated in the 80s) he came over for my Nan's funeral and we got Talking, turns out he is a Tolkien fan too and wrote to him in 1973 to which he recieved a reply from Tolkien at the Alan and Unwin offices.
He had asked about more books about hobbits, the reply said there would be no more but a book called the silmarillion was in the works. That is the year tolkien died. I could scan it if any one would like a look. He gave me the letter!

Is the signature typed or hand-written?

I dont think he actually signed it, just an interesting topic for discussion.

You are correct, Tolkien did not sign this item (pp indicates it was signed on behalf of), unfortunately he probably did not see the original letter or reply and it was all handled by his publisher (George Allen and Unwin).
