Not sure about the story of where this book came from. Assuming that the story of the original owner is true and there is some provenance to support it, it is more likely I think that this is one of the copies bound in paper covers in July 1937. Tolkien went to London to visit the PUBLISHER in July, not the PRINTER. I think it is quite possible that they would have given him a couple of the paper-bound copies during the visit.

My eyes keep getting drawn back. It looks like something from Hellraiser.

Huh…. Seriously now??

OK… Maybe for that price it’s like a fine bottle of wine that our tastebuds have not yet been trained to appreciate…
