The link that you posted didn't work! Help me! I need a copy of this and the price is irresistible!! Wait . . . a madness came upon me but it has passed. Forgive me! (Smell that? That was sarcasm.) Someone explain the reason behind such an ebay listing to me PLEASE! I don't get it (other than greed?)

Thanks for posting this one!

Something new on Ebay -

http://cgi.ebay.com/c1934-CHAUCER-as- ... tible?hash=item518ebe9da1

Looks ok to me - but the price seems a bit steep. What do others think?

BTW - H.F.B. Brett-Smith was a member of the 'Cave', that is, a junta within the Oxford English School which was formed by Lewis and Tolkien in order to put through Tolkien's proposed changes to the English syllabus. Which, if he'd had his way, would have seen Shakespeare out of an Oxford English course (more or less), in favour of more philology!

See 'The Oxford English School' by JRR Tolkien; The Oxford magazine, May 29th, 1930.

" Chaucer should be recovered for such students as a mediaeval author, ... The pretence that no 'English' curriculum is humane which does not include Shakespeare must naturally be abandoned, since that author lies quite outside the purview of such a course."

Somewhat slightly more expensive than Amazon but at least you get free shipping.

I just came across a nice copy of the 1982 Super Deluxe Silmarillion by Allen and Unwin, listed on ebay. It is number 205/1000 and looks to be in nice shape. Unfortunately, it is missing its slipcase, but with the prices this thing usually commands, it could be a real bargain. All it would take is someone to make up a reproduction of the slipcase.
