Thank you, Deagol.

Finding something that makes you envious has made my day.

Gawain, you said your copy lacked a dust-jacket. Amazon has listed the book with the full title Wonder Tales from Fairy Isles: England, Cornwall, Wales, Scotland, Man and Ireland. Does this appear on the flyleaf, or do you think this full title (if it's correct) appeared on the dust-jacket (if there was one)?

I'm also interested in this, as far as I am aware Tolkien did not want this poem to be republished after the 1920s, so I think rights issues may be interesting on this item.

In reply to Morgan, the answer is yes. That is the same book - the full title appears on the title page - I have uploaded an image.

What I find intriguing about the acknowledgements is that the editor acknowledges permission from Tolkien which implies she actually corresponded with Tolkien.

That is in contrast with the Open Door to Poetry anthology mentioned by Uruloke earlier in the thread. You can see here that the editor for that book acknowledges Basil Blackwell for permission.
