I have two copies of Tolkien's "A Middle English Vocabulary". Both are dated 1922 (ie M DCCCC XXII) on the front cover and the title page. There are some differences, though -

Copy (A) says "Printed in England" at the foot of the title page; copy (B) does not.

In copy (A), the advertisements at the back are headed "Middle English"; in (B), they are headed "Early and Middle English", and dated "October 1921".

How do I tell which is the earlier? I find the comments in Hammond & Anderson a little confusing.

Thanks

Never seen so many 'first editions' which aren't actually firsts -

Mind you, the Gandalf figure looks tasty

That's still expensive - I bought a one - off signed book for £35.00, not so many years ago. Just luck I expect. Though if anyone were to ask me what's a good price for a CT signature, I'd have to admit I don't know.

I agree, Christopher Tolkien's signatures are currently quite easy to acquire, I think I have 8 or 9 in my collection. Christopher Tolkien has signed a lot more book plates and books than his father.

You can get a signed copy by Christopher Tolkien for £245 from the HarperCollins website.

OK this is an earlier example of his signature, but £1200 more!!!

Yes, that's a silly price for a Silmarillion - and Christopher's autograph can't be worth as much as that, can it? (no offence to CT)

As for the Wolfe book - words fail one, don't they?
