While we were in Oxford at the weekend, we went to the "Romance of the Middle Ages" exhibition at the Bodleian Library (of course!) It had a manuscript page from The Two Towers - and the original manuscript of Gawain and the Green Knight - and lots of other wonderful things. But possibly best of all, it had the Tolkien / Gordon edition of Gawain, annotated by CS Lewis! There's a picture here:

We were in Oxford last weekend, and my wife took me to the botanic gardens. Among many other wonderful plants, we saw Tolkien's favourite black pine; and (while off-topic from a collecting viewpoint), I thought you might like a photo.

On all of your advice I've moved the starting price down to £250. Just wanted to say thanks once again for all of your help.

I was going to say a couple of hundred, but I just noticed that you've started it at £400. Regardless of what people might pay, I think you've pitched the start price too high. Start lower --it will generate more interest & more bidding.

At £5 you will make for sure and a good find.

Id say if it doesnt sell either lower price or maybe offer it out on this forum. There are lots of collectors and maybe someone might be interested at right price , whatever that may be ?
