Condition: Very Good in Good dust jacket
The Old English Exodus Tolkien, J. R. R. ; Turville-Petre, Joan, editor Oxford Clarendon Press 1981 Hardcover 8vo 8" - 9" tall KB17...x, 85, [i] pp. Index. Octavo. Dark green glossy dust jacket with light red lettering (often faded to yellow in many copies) . Front flap is price clipped. Book itself is clean and tight, still contains the review copy postcard from OUP that confirms the book was printed in 1982, although the date indicated inside the book is 1981. Very nice copy with really its only flaw being the price clipped flap. Only 3000 copies were printed and it was never reprinted. Tolkien lectured on the Old English Exodus in the 30s and 40s, grappling with its difficult passages (and frequently berating the scribe for what Tolkien viewed as that fellow's failings). His notes were collected with the help of the editor. A scarce and very nice copy.

For our international customers, import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyer's responsibility.

These charges are normally collected by the delivering freight (shipping) company or when you pick the item up -- do not confuse them with additional shipping charges. We really cannot show merchandise below value or mark items as "gifts" - it can get us into all kinds of trouble with customs. Since Brexit, shipping to the UK may require a VAT invoice.
