Lot 907 - Estimate £700-£1000

Autograph letter signed, 'J.R.R. Tolkien', 20 Northmoor Road, Oxford, 4 July 1939,
to Miss Segar, concerning her and other colleagues' hours for forthcoming exams to be overseen, 'Can you arrange to be free (according to the time-table I sent) on all the days except Friday 21st and Monday 24th?... If you will tell me Miss R[idgeway]'s address I will fetch her at the required times', thanking her for her kindness and 'we'll say no more about recompense. Just a card to signify that this is all fixed up would be a further kindness', a little spotting and a few light creases at head and foot, 2 pp., 8vo

The letter looks great but the challenge I always have is displaying them . If two sided you have had it !
The one siders and cards look great but these 2 siders or more cant really be enjoyed IMHO
Unless anyone has found a way ?
