This may have been posted before, but I thought it was interesting, nonetheless.

Love that handwriting! [In reply to] Can't Post

Rather thin and spidery, just like Bilbo's!

Truly awe-inspiring [In reply to] Can't Post

Gives me goosebumps! And the handwriting is beautiful.

I would also suggest you post this on one of the other boards here, like The Reading Room, or Main, so it gets more visibility. This is the board for discussion of the LOTR films, but on Main or The Reading Room you'll find all Tolkien-related topics. I bet the folks there would love to see this.

Thanks for sharing it!

Whoa! What a great find! [In reply to] Can't Post

It somehow looks as if it should be illuminated, like old manuscripts. ("Document by the Venerable Tolkien")Cool
