Well, I got the SuperDeluxe Edition in a very surprising and lucky way:

With the 30% off discount from a couple of months ago, I decided to buy The Tolkien Deluxe Collection box (which is already very expensive for me as I am a student )
When The HaCo box arrived at my home, I thought the outer box too narrow to contain the box with the books in it. I opened it, already panicking that it would be a wrong order...
It was of course a wrong order but one that turned out great for me as I thought the SuperDeluxe edition (for that was of course the book that was in the box) far too expensive for my budget.

And that way I was and still am a happy young man

Microsoft have been assisting libraries with scanning of books that are now out of copyright at books.live.com.

I did a search for Tolkien and found that a copy of "A Middle English Vocabulary" has been scanned and is free to download as a PDF file, you can also search the book as it has been run through OCR software.

I don't own this book, so it is very nice to be able use it as a reference book.

You can download it here.


The link doesn't work anymore. Is there someone who has downloaded the book and wants to email it to me? Just let me know in a pm and I'll send you my email address.

Thanks

Seems quite bad, does it?

It has some elements that look quite 'Tolkienish' - e.g. the signature line under Tolkien - but that's all. The t, k and n in Tolkien are very different from his handwriting
I am quite sure it is a fake.
A shame to ruin a rare book with a fake signature...

Always in for a free book
I have received the deluxe editon just a week, but I haven't got time to read it... I have almost examinations, you see, so Tolkien has to make (a little) way for some time...
Is it good? (the book Sigurd and Gudrún, I mean)

By the way, thanks HoughtonMifflin!
