The lack of known copies of Sir Orfeo may be due in part to the fact that Tolkien's name does not appear in it, so very few people would know what they were looking at.

I think that the other reason the Sir Orfeo tends to get over looked is because it is an edited text rather than an original composition.

I only know of one copy offered for sale and that was quite some time ago.

BTW
My article at TolkienBooks.net on Songs for the Philologists was updated recently - it now has a complete listing of the contents, a couple of new images and few extra snippets of information supplied by the lucky owner of one copy.

I can't remember who told me that, but I am very glad to be told that I am wrong. I have updated the page.

I met Åke very briefly at Oxonmoot when he was buying a Serbo-Croat translation of The Lay of Aotrou and Itroun from Daerons Books. He had the collector's gleam in his eyes!

I see now how to get notifications for the forums, but it would be handy to have similar for different sections of the guide... a weekly or monthly digest maybe rather than notifications for each update.

Feel free to experiment on my email address.

A few lines telling us what you've been up to would be handy.
I stop by quite regularly to look in on the forum, but it is easy to miss new bits in the guide or the BoM.
I haven't tried playing with notification settings for quite a while - last time I tried things weren't working very well...
