Microsoft have been assisting libraries with scanning of books that are now out of copyright at books.live.com.

I did a search for Tolkien and found that a copy of "A Middle English Vocabulary" has been scanned and is free to download as a PDF file, you can also search the book as it has been run through OCR software.

I don't own this book, so it is very nice to be able use it as a reference book.

You can download it here.


The link doesn't work anymore. Is there someone who has downloaded the book and wants to email it to me? Just let me know in a pm and I'll send you my email address.

Thanks

It has some elements that look quite 'Tolkienish' - e.g. the signature line under Tolkien - but that's all. The t, k and n in Tolkien are very different from his handwriting
I am quite sure it is a fake.
A shame to ruin a rare book with a fake signature...

I will have to have a look at the cardboard box for my unopened Super Deluxe Children of Hurin but it either had a handwritten number or a printed label with a number on. That number is the number of the book.

Buy the paperback for a reading copy. It has the same pictures as the SuperDeluxe.

Hi all. This is about the super deluxe edition of the children of hurin, just thought id give my two bobs worth. I orderd a copy of the super deluxe edition of the children of hurin and a signed copy of tales from the perilous realm on the 9th of july.
I live at the bottom of Western Australia and was shiting myself with worry. I was thinking about all the things that could go wrong and reading peoples reports about Harper Collins service wasnt helping. I have never had problems with them directly but i no they can leave much to be desired.

I went to the post office today to find a parcel awaiting me (today being the 21st). I was exited but still a little worried, so i raced home to open it.
Upon opening the parcel i discoverd that everything was as it should be.
My only complaint being i dont know the number for CoH as i am not going to open it. I am saving up for a reading copy.

So i must say a big thankyou to Harper Collins for there excellent service and hope that it is now standard as i will be making more purchases in the, i hope, near future.
