LXIV) Faculté de Philosphie et Lettres / Librarie E. Droz Liége / Paris(printed in Great Britain) Hammond: p. 278 An Edition of Þe Liflade ant te Passiun of Seinte Iuliene ("An Edition of The Life and the Passion of Saint Juliana") is the published thesis of S.R.T.O. d’Ardenne . The book is dedicated to J.R.R. Tolkien. Tolkien is also acknowledged by d’Ardenne in the prefatory note: “I am deeply indebted for assistance from the beginning of my work on this text, and especially during the revision of the glossary and grammar.” D’Ardenne admitted privately that Tolkien should have been credited as a joint editor. It was published solely under d’Ardenne’s name as a thesis that enabled her to be elected as a professor at the University of Liége. Printing here was for the Bibliothéque de la Faculté de Philosphie et Lettres de l’Université de Liégeand in 1936 and the date is noted in the opening pages and on spine. It has a Corrigenda tipped in by the Early English Text Society in 1961 (see pics) . (There is also a much more common version published by Oxford University Press for the Early English Text Society in the sixties.) Hardcover / bound thesis. 1936 Gilt to spine. Rebound for the library in brown cloth boards. Boards frayed (see pics) and some cracking. Name plate on inside front. Corrigenda tipped in after title (Early English Text Society) in 1961 A very rare and early acknowledgement of Tolkien and his work in linguistics. It's a rare gem for the Tolkien enthusiast and completist. It's a certainty that it will be a very long time before another is seen.
