It's Old, not Middle, English. More specifically, it's line 3052 of Beowulf, which Tolkien himself translated as "the gold of men of long ago enmeshed in enchantment" (Letters, #235).

Hi folks

Has anyone outside the US received their copy of Tolkien Studies 6 yet? I thought they were due out by now.

Pointed out to me by Beren (via twitter) - Amazon.co.uk now has the release date listed as June 10, 2010. Amazon.com does not confirm this, so this doesn't bear much weight - probably just means the publisher said "next year some time" in one of their catalog listings.

Thanks all, I just couldn't find what I was looking for in Hammond's biblio - need to get my glasses checked I guess. Also thanks for the other data points on your copies. Much appreciated!

The Hammond & Anderson Bibliography implies (p. 40) that the misprint 'Ratelves' was introduced with the 'third edition' (A&U) of 1966, presumably with its first printing, which was identified as 'sixteenth printing' overall (p. 39). It also states the error was continued in the "new 'eighth impression'" of 1974, which was reset (p. 58).
