Thanks for your enlightening responses, all of you.
Untrimmed it is then!
And finally I know what '8vo' stands for. I've have come across the term several times but I didn't know what it meant (I don't know why I didn't look it up ).

How about your copies, Gawain and Trotter (and the others who read this, of course)? Are they too untrimmed, like Laurel's and mine?
If find it somewhat annoying that I can't read Tolkien's essay properly...


edit/ I found out that untrimmed, uncut and Deckle Edge actually mean the same thing, i.e. pages that are not cut, with rough edges. The first edition of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight is like this for example (well, at least my copy is).
So I don't know if there really is a clear and specific term for the 'phenomenon' I was looking for. Perhaps untrimmed and uncut are the terms that best describe it3

I have got a question on this book. My copy of 'Essais' is 'uncut'. With this I mean that I cannot turn all the pages because they still stick together in quires (see photo). Does anyone of you has this sort of copy to? And what is the correct term for this (the term I refer to as 'uncut')?

Thomas

Laurel I have lost out on some great offers including a 1963 deluxe LOTR set for £400 only last year because i messed around.


Something like that happened to me also. About two-three years ago, I had the chance to buy a Dutch first impression of The Fellowship of the Ring, signed by Tolkien for about €75, I think. I doubted because it was an ex-library copy (without d/j), in bad condition and wasn't too sure about the signature (I was rather a 'newbie' back then), and it was quite a lot of money for me back then. So I let it slip out of my hands, just like that.
A year ago, I was searching Beren's website and in his shop I saw that same book, for about €1800!
I cursed myself to hell. I could have had one of the very few - if not the sole! - signed Dutch Tolkien books.

But too bad, such things happen (although I hope they never do anymore ).

Edit/ Thank you for those photo's Remy!

Thanks for your posts Garm, Jlong, Gawain and Remy.
Does anyone have a photo of the original binding of the 1936 edition of 'Seinte Iuliene'? I have received this photo's of the seller but it's not the original binding, is it?
I've also uploaded a photo of The Return of the King and of the other two books, for comparison.
(Hope this is not going to be too large a post)
