This is a vintage copy of "Beowulf and the Finnesburg Fragment" with its original dust jacket. John R. Clark Hall translation. 1963; George Allen & Unwin; London. This edition contains prefatory remarks by J.R.R. TOLKIEN. The back of the dust jacket has advertisements for Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings," "The Hobbit," and "Farmer Giles of Ham." There is also an advertisement page for the same Tolkien works at the back of the book. Completely revised with Notes and an Introduction by C.L. Wrenn. The dust jacket is un-clipped with the original price intact on the front flap. From the dust jacket: "In 1940 we published Professor Wrenn's thorough revision of the late Dr. Clark Hall's translation of Beowulf which had acquired a special place among students of the great Anglo-Saxon epic. This included Professor Tolkien's prefatory account of the metre of the original (the most authoritative as well as the most readable essay on this difficult subject in English) as well as a few textual notes by Professor Wrenn. We are now glad to be able to publish a new edition of this work, brought up-to-date and considerably enlarged. Professor Wrenn has written a new Introduction setting forth important general matters relating to the poem, improved the translation by the correction of a few misprints and, in the light of recent work, has added to and greatly enlarged his notes on the interpretation of the text."
