Good find Jlong! I had a copy already archived, but good to have it online for everyone to download. I did a search in their archive and also found Oxford Poetry 1915

http://www.archive.org/details/oxfordpoetry1915oxfouoft

and Beowulf and the Critics (which probably shouldn't be on there as it is still under copyright! I have sent a note to Mike Drout asking if he is aware)

Here is what he sent me:

Dear tolkien_hunter,

Hello and thank you for your interest in our auction. We are selling this book on behalf of the daughter of the recipient of the dedication/signature. He was a student at Oxford in the late 50's. I hope this helps.


- jtwros_bks

I replied to him that this was not enough info. Someone will spend thousands of dollars on this tough. I wish people would just not buy signed work without good provenance so the markey for fakes would go away.

-It is a very nice book, but very expensive, I bought on the first day without the discounts that you can now get

yes i wasnt aware of the current discount until i went to purchase it, which was a nice surprise.



-If you like this book, you also may want to get the Super Deluxe Legend of Sigurd and Gudrun, though it is not as good a quality as COH.


The S&G Super Deluxe is next on my list. I appreciate all tolkiens works and i find this edition, being the first of its kind for a new, sadly overlooked, work, very appealing.

Here is another signature that came up on eBay. It looks pretty bad to me; personally, I wouldn't pay a dollar for this one.
