In the Fourth century the southern half of the Iron Age site was occupied by a Romano-British temple complex. The article 'The name Nodens' is by J.R.R.Tolkien at his most abstruse and scholarly and is one of Tolkiens earlier publications. Bookseller Inventory # 59143

yes, not a bad price. But - the description says, 'deckle edges' - they're yapp edges, aren't they?

I went to check my copy, and realized that mine is fully trimmed so I can't answer definitively! I am pretty sure the deckle is correct though.

deckle edges - The natural rough and uneven edges of book pages when they have not been trimmed flush. The binding of handmade paper can also produce this decorative effect. Also known as uncut.

yapp - A style of binding where the edges of the paper extend beyond all three edges of a book. It is named after a London bookseller who invented it around 1860, and is mostly used for books of devotion and verse.

Has anyone else noticed this pattern? Whenever something uncommon comes up for sale, maybe something that hasn't been seen offered for a year or more... inevitably another comes up for sale shortly after. I've seen this happen more times than I can count.
