Tolkien - "I have never been a lover of books for children.." Can't Post

"...and have seldom read any since my childhood."

This short passage is from one of three letters coming up for sale next month in an auction in Germany. Here's a link to the catalogue -

The letters are lot no.274. In another of the letters he writes: "I do not myself favour any illustrations of _The Lord of the Rings_... "

Interesting, no?
