Ah, please excuse my stupidity and ignorance. I now see a small black sticker with a number on it.

Dear Trotter, i am afraid i do have a standad paperback edition, and a couple of normal hardcovers. I have my super deluxe edition to keep, but i need another to open, to smell and touch and read.
Mental i know,...its a problem

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...

My only complaint being i dont know the number for CoH as i am not going to open it.


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.
