I am writing on behalf of a scholar who wishes to know if JRR Tolkien ever owned Prescott's Conquest of Mexico; and, if so, was it the 1922 Chatto & Windus edition with illustrations by Keith Henderson.
This is for a source study.
We are not interested in the condition or collector's value of this book, only in whether or not Tolkien owned it (and, hopefully, looked at or read it).
Can anyone help with this?
Directions to sale catalogs of books from Tolkien's library would also be appreciated.
Thanks, Dis
