I received my tea last week. I haven't tasted it yet, but the boxes look beautiful on my bookshelf! :)

Many thanks to Jeremy and the guys from Mint Brook Meadow Teas!

The book is cloth bound so there will have been a dustjacket, as you say, Trotter. A pity that I can't seem to find a picture of it...
I wonder why the book is so scarce..
Also I can't find out much more about RS Fowler than the fact that he wrote a handful of English school books (also with AJB Dick) and had some interest in Tolkien.

The edition you mention, garm, seems to be quite scarce also, is it? I can also find just a handful of this edition. Has there been only one printing with Fowler's introduction perhaps?

Today I bought the book English, A Literary Foundation Course by R.S. Fowler and A.J.B. Dick. It was published by GA&U in 1975 and contains extracts of several books, among which an extract of Mount Doom (Lotr, Book VI, chapter III). Except for my copy, I can find just one copy of the hardback (like mine) and a handful of copies of the paperback version. Does anyone here own a copy of this book or has more information on this book? Did it originally have a dustjacket?

I have found out that one of the authors (RS Fowler) wrote an introduction for a 1974 'school edition' of The Hobbit.
