J.R.R. Tolkien Typed Letter Signed Discussing Piracy of His Works — “…I was becoming heavily involved in the business of combating ‘piracy’ in the United States…”

J.R.R. Tolkien autograph on a typed letter signed. Dated 11 May 1966, letter referring to the piracy of his wildy successful “The Hobbit” and “The Lord of the Rings” reads, “Dear Mr. Walker, I did receive the tape that you sent to me on 13th July, not the 3rd July, 1965. I regret not having acknowledged receipt, but it arrived just as I was becoming heavily involved in the business of combating ‘piracy’ in the United States, which occupied me most of the remainder of last year. I am afraid it has been wasted on me because I have not now got a recorder and am far too busy to deal with any such matters. If you think of going further with your settings, either making public use of your tapes or considering publication of the music please consult Messrs. Allen & Unwin, 40 Museum Street, W.C.1. I return your tape herewith with regrets that I am not able to make any proper return for your interest in my work. Yours sincerely, [J.R.R. Tolkien]”. Single-page letter on a sheet of Tolkien’s blind-stamped personal stationery measures 7″ x 9″. Toning, creasing and minor foxing. Very good.  Sold for $1,944.37.
