About six months ago, I found a proof copy of English & Medieval Studies Presented to J. R. R. Tolkien on the Occasion of his 70th Birthday. Has anyone ever seen a copy of this before?

I believe it is an uncorrected bound proof and not an advance reading copy as the book is paperback and the blurb for it is stapled to the inside of the cover. It also has a stamp on the cover that reads "Book Proof" with a date of Nov. 1962.

Thanks a lot Beren! I really do appreciate it. Though it is obviously unfortunate that those endpapers were removed, at least the books weren't completely disposed of. It seems from all the evidence that the books I purchased are pretty legitimate, though I guess no one can ever be 100% sure because the books no longer contain the signatures.

Beren,
You have quite an impressive collection and nice find. You sure know how to make a fellow Tolkien collector jealous. :) Smith of Wootton Major is my favorite Tolkien tale (other than the LOTR). I wrote my MA thesis on it, and I'm teaching it in my Tolkien/Lewis class this semester.

Is there any easier way of purchasing this than through TS? I live in the US and $30 for surface mail seems a bit expensive. Is anyone in the US selling it? Also, why are these proceedings so expensive (they're not even HBs)? The cost reminds me of Drout's Tolkien Encyclopedia. I eventually picked up a copy of it by combining my Barnes and Noble membership with a Barnes and Noble gift card & a 50% off coupon. If I could only find a deal like that I might buy this set. :)
