himself. He said that when he asked Tolkien to sign his book, JRRT
remarked, "Did you know that your surname means 'son of Middle-Earth in
Elvish?" I copied down the inscription in Michael's book:
formen - óre + right curl / malta - extended stem hwesta + single dot
- yanta + triple dot - lambe / silme - númen + right curl / extended
stem ampa / malta - ando + single dot & under tilde / lambe + under dot
/ 'a' tengwa + accent / óre / thúle .
(I trust you can decipher that!) This was followed by 'elen síla
lúmenn' omentielmo' in Tengwar and the 'anga - rómen - rómen -
tinco' and Tolkien's regular signature. The book was signed in the mid
Cuio mae, Danny.
