It was a 1st/2nd in a wrapper. It was a long time ago; didn't cost more than a few pounds.

Hang on, I'll just get my copy... here we are; the contents are listed on the rear cover of the dustjacket, with 'The Homecoming of Beorhtnoth Beorhthelm's Son by JRR Tolkien' in first place.

The original claim was that it was (as far as the vendor knew) the first time that 'Beorhtnoth' appeared in print. Whether the word appeared on the cover of a book before or since is not in itself very significant. For one thing, the title is abbreviated - from 'The Homecoming of Beorhtnoth Beorhthelm's Son'.

As I've said in a previous post, one of my favourites is this -

- at only 300 copies, this one is actually rare.

You didn't give away a 1st/1st or 1st/2nd?

Just a question... why are we discussing when it first appeared on the cover of a book?


You have to ask this? Here?
