Some notes on abbreviations used in these listings:

  • ALS: Autograph Letter Signed (hand-written and signed by Tolkien)
  • LS: Letter Signed (hand-written by someone else, but signed by Tolkien)
  • TLS: Typed Letter Signed
  • Hand written (ALS) letters are very much more sought after than typed letters - not just because they are clearly more personal and Tolkien spent more time on them, but also they are very much less likely to be forged.
