That edition was never released without a Slipcase.

The one at the Book Depository includes the slipcase.

Hi Onónion,

The Iuliene in the photo is rebound. I have attached a few pictures in original (softcover) binding.

Personally (and without hesitation), I would go for the 1936 Passiun of Seinte Iuliene. Quite hard to find an original printing (especially in original wrappers - mostly found re-bound). And £40 seems extremely reasonable (The in-print EETS edition costs around that amount new). That would be from my "collector's" point of view.

First copy I have seen for sale in around 3 years. Anyone ever see a rebound Hobbit or Silmarillion from Thornton's? Do these exist?

My Wish List always seems to grow (no matter how many editions I acquire...)

Some of the most desired are as follows:

1925 Review of English Studies Vol 1 No 2 (Contributions to Middle English Lexicography)
1928 Dialect of the District of Huddersfield (with Dustjacket)
King Edward’s School Chronicle (Various Tolkien Issues)
1918 Spring Harvest
1939 Reeve’s Tale
1947 English Studies
1913 Stapeldon Magazine
1922 Gryphon
1923 A Northern Venture
1930 Oxford Magazine
Rebound Thornton's Hobbit and Silmarillion (if they exist - not sure they do)
1937 Summer Announcments (and possibly Spring - can't remember) - GA&U Catalogues
Introduction to Old Norse (with DJ)
