We have it, and refer to it in the Companion and Guide, at the end of the article on Birmingham (p. 117). The chapter on Tolkien (pp. 28-33) is notable for having five photos of Tolkien's and Tolkien's grandparents' homes.

Some Moseley Personalities Volume 1.

Featuring: The Balden Family; Joseph Chamberlain; Percy Harrison; Sir John Holder; Sir Barry Jackson; Cyril Lander; Joseph, Harry & Oliver Lucas; Sir Herbert Manzoni; Sidney H Meteyard & Kate Eadie; Henry Morton, JRR Tolkien; William Dyke Williamson

Does anybody have a copy of this booklet/pamphlet or has anybody heard of it? It contains a chapter on Tolkien (and his life in Birmingham?).

"...stay well clear of any metal or plastic tool, the use of which, even with care, may bring disastrous results, mainly because it will be so much harder than book paper and have a hard edge. Much better to use a stiff card, for instance an index card (at the library I use old catalog card stock), heavier than the paper to be cut but not too thick, and keeping it and the book flat, address the unopened top or fore-edge with a gentle sawing motion, with just enough force to get the job done."

- Wayne

yes of course - (where is my mind lately?). An index card is what I used on the Bonjour. I stopped using rulers some time ago.

As for Gawain - I thought it sounded odd.

...and I wouldn't do it to a 1st ed. Gawain (Garm)


There is a little misunderstanding here, I think. My Gawain, as all the early prints I bet, has deckle edges (=untrimmed/uncut pages), but is not unopened. I can turn every page, but the edges of the pages are rough, not smooth.

But I don't think I will 'open' my copy of Essais. I'm not that handy and the risk of creasing a page is too great. And it seems a nice oddity to my collection. It also means the book has never been read or used before.

Anyway, thank you for your responses!

My copy of Essas is the same, as well as my copy of the Transactions of the Honourable Society of the Cymmrodorion.

have left them both wthout separating the pages. Is there a need to open the pages? I was worried about damaging the books
