My uncle found this in a Charity Shop yesterday, what do people think?

1971 Fellowship of the Ring (6th Impression of the Second printing). price-clipped dust-jacket and a 21st Birthday inscription on front-page.

Looks fine to me - compare it with the sig. in that letter.

Lucky old uncle!

He paid £3.99 from an Oxfam Bookshop, I think this must trump any finds in the Lucky Finds thread

Also looks fine to me. I have a Signed 1970 Return of the King (with provenance) with what appears at first glance to be an indentical signature in both style, colour and depth of signature.

The seller I purhased the book from worked with Unwin at the time. He had a set of 3 signed books (1971 FOTR, 1971 TT and 1970 ROTK). But his 1971 FOTR was stolen at some point. (Not saying that this is the copy of course).
