The original claim was that it was (as far as the vendor knew) the first time that 'Beorhtnoth' appeared in print. Whether the word appeared on the cover of a book before or since is not in itself very significant. For one thing, the title is abbreviated - from 'The Homecoming of Beorhtnoth Beorhthelm's Son'.

As I've said in a previous post, one of my favourites is this -

- at only 300 copies, this one is actually rare.

Hang on, I'll just get my copy... here we are; the contents are listed on the rear cover of the dustjacket, with 'The Homecoming of Beorhtnoth Beorhthelm's Son by JRR Tolkien' in first place.

And this is why I asked the question - such an interesting discussion, and a reminder of a cool limited edition!

[Pay no mind to the sordid history leading up to this.....]
