Hi
I have a letter dated 30 March 1936 from George Allen & Unwin Ltd to Tolkein enquiring about whether he would edit Clark-Hall’s Beowulf. I have no idea if it has any value or not and if so where and how I would sell it. I would be very grateful if anyone could offer a view on this. I am based in London, UK

Interesting. I'm sure a few here would be interested in seeing a scan of it. eBay would be your first option; if not someone here may just make you an offer privately.

Post an image of it here if you like.
