Re: The Homecoming of Beorhtnoth - on the cover

While we're on the subject - the first time Tolkien's paper 'Ancrenne Wisse and Hali Maethad' appeared in print was in 'Essays and Studies' Vol. XIV, 1929. Tolkien's name, and the name of the paper, appear on the front of the dustwrapper, as part of the contents.

Same goes for his papers 'Some Contributions to Middle English Lexicography', and 'The Devil's Coach-horses', which appear in The Review of English Studies, Vol.I, 1924.

Without getting up, I'm pre-tty sure the same is true for his paper 'English and Welsh', in 'Angles and Britons'.

Of course, these facts - if indeed they are all facts - don't mean a lot when it comes to valuations. It's all just sales guff.
