A letter clipping hand-signed by J.R.R. Tolkien, this is one of the “tipping” signatures he sent in his correspondence with fans. As a professor he communicated by letter more often than he signed copies of his books, so when asked for autographs he would sometimes sign a couple of extra times for fans to cut out and “tip in” to the books. This autograph is one of two cut from the same letter. The signature is on watermarked paper from the Hotel Miramar in Bournemouth, where Tolkien frequently went on holiday. It is displayed in a hand-crafted case, made from leather and artfully marbled paper. I bought it a decade ago from The Tolkien Bookshelf, the foremost online dealer in authentic Tolkien memorabilia.
