So what was the link between this book and Tolkien again?

Tolkien read Beowulf a few times; he lived in Oxford for a bit; &... I don't know, did he meet Basil?

How many more connections do you want?

yers, JRR lived next door to Basil in Northmoor Road - he bought Basil's house in 1930; they took down a part of the fence so's to make the move easier...

The item itself (& price) probably belongs in the "interesting" thread, but the description is pure "wonders" material of the highest order!

Smith of Wootton major by J R R Tolkein h/b 1st 1967

This is a very small book 6 X 4 1/4 inches only 61 pages but it is complete and i have never seen this title before, best quality of vampires is that thay are very trustworthy, their next best quality is that thay are very modest! Overall i would say that vampires are some of the best bloodsuckers on ebay!
