Many thanks for the link! It's good to see that The New York Times keep reprinting and adding articles to their "Tolkien Archives".

Very unusual to see a copy


Yes, I noticed that there are no sellers for the item on either Amazon.co.uk or Abebooks. And there are seemingly no libraries back here in Sweden which include it in their collections.

Nice to at least see a picture of it, though - beautiful cover!

Concerning Parma Eldalamberon - I have bought all of the available issues (quite a few issues with original Tolkien content are out of print, sadly).

If I had to choose between only one of the issues, I would buy PE17, "Words, Phrases and Passages in The Lord of the Rings", which is one of the most important posthumously published writings in my opinion.

Unless you're seriously interested in Tolkien's invented languages, PE17 is the true gem among the later PE issues.

Just my two pennies' worth!

Some web sites (Tolkienbooks.net and Tolkien Library) include The Oxford Book of Greek Verse in Translation in the JRRT bibliographies.

Tolkienbooks.net lists the work under "Other Credits", saying that "Tolkien helped with 'Introduction Part II - Greek Poetry in Translation'.", and gives 1944 as the publication year.

Tolkien Library gives 1938 as the publication year.

Amazon.co.uk also has 1938 as the publication year, saying it was the 2nd edition.

The Oxford Book of Greek Verse in Translation is not included in the section "Published Writings by JRRT" in the JRRT Companion and Guide (I'm eagerly awaiting the promised new edition of the JRRT: A Descriptive Bibliography!). Can anyone point me to a published source which includes a description of this book in relation Tolkien's alleged contribution?

Was there an edition of this book published before 1938 (the 1st edition?), and did Tolkien not contribute to this edition?

Thank you!

Yes, I believe you're right. I enlarged the image in Photoshop, and it appears like the name "John Ronald Tolkien" has been inserted (there are no pixels in various blue nuances around this piece of text, as is the case with the rest of the image).

What a prank!
