Talk:Exeter College Smoker (1912)

Revision as of 16:15, 19 April 2021 by Tik (Talk | contribs)

In their Corrigenda and Addenda to J.R.R. Tolkien: Artist and Illustrator (1995) Hammond and Scull note (section "Further Corrigenda and Addenda") on Exeter College Smoker 1912 on p. 33:

On rechecking this cover (in Bodleian Library restricted papers), we see that we mistook the monogram of the artist, which we think reads ‘JKD’, for an early Tolkien monogram. It is distinctly different from the JRRT monogram on the 1913 ‘Smoker’ programme cover.

Thus I propose this article to be deleted (but with some note on it to be left because probably most readers, who have not happened to see the C & A page, may still consider it to be a genuine Tolkien artwork. --Tik 16:12, 19 April 2021 (UTC)
