The Finn book is not by Tolkien - it's by R.A. Williams. This copy comes from Tolkien's library, and has his ownership signature.


This particular book also has some other hand-writing under Tolkien's signature, possibly to remind Tolkien about the quality of the book.

This is not a single book, but two separate items. The Finn book is not by Tolkien - it's by R.A. Williams. This copy comes from Tolkien's library, and has his ownership signature.

The second item is an offprint of Tolkien's Middle English Lexicography, taken from the Review of English Studies Volume 1, 1925. The article doesn't appear in the Finn book.

I humbly ask for some help on tracing the publication history of "Some Contributions to Middle-English Lexicography" by J.R.R. Tolkien.

The tolkienbookshelf.com has a copy of the 1924 book The Finn Episode in Beowulf for sale, which contains the article. However, according to Bertenstam's bibliography of Tolkien's published works, the article didn't appear until 1925 in The Review of English Studies.

Was the 1925 article merely a reprint of the article in the 1924 book?

Thank you,

Morgan

My copy of the 1963 3 volume Deluxe LOTR is very fragile and I was looking for a means to give the boxset some additional protection. The slipcase is splitting and has quite a bit of damage to the excellent Pauline Baynes illustrations.

David Miller at the Tolkienbookshelf.com designed a clamshell case for me that covers the original slipcase and books.

I was very pleased with the results and attach some pictures.

More pictures are available at the Tolkien Bookshelf.
