At least the signature isn't blue.

Items like this always make me laugh. Do sellers like this think someone is actually naive enough to buy one?

Hello to all -

Updated the December Calendar of the Month on:

www.tolkiencalendars.com

Beyond this feature, have started a 2010 page where you can find the new ones that are coming out. I LOVE this time of year! The Green Hill Country turns white, the 2010s start arriving, and the holidays are near at hand. Merry Christmas and a VERY Happy New Year to everyone!

Away from The Green Hill Country,

Parm

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."
