I think they are Canadian (hence not on TolkienBooks.net), and it is the three volumes of LotR plus The Hobbit.

I wonder is ELT is "English Language Teaching" and related to "Pearson ELT". From memory, Pearson acquired Longmans, so could be a paperback equivalent to the hardback Longman editions? Not something I have seen before personally:


Edit:

Tolkienbooks.net has an entry for it:

I didn't even try. I figured there was a 100% chance of there being other people prepared to may more than me. I suspect I will never have one of these!

I wonder if "Tolkien's Corrigan Poems" is simply a commentary by VF on various drafts of the Lay or if Tolkien wrote multiple poems that include reference to Corrigan (I'm not aware that he did)?

At the end of the day, it is a short poem, so the commentary giving context and explanation shouldn't really be a hundred pages long, unless intended to pad. Verbosity is not a virtue, and neither - necessarily - is squeezing in every draft.
