J.R.R. Tolkien - The Devil's Coach-Horses - Sidgwick & Jackson, 1925, First Edition. London, Sidgwick & Jackson, 1925. First Edition. First Impression. Paperback. A rare Tolkien piece, an essay examining the word Eaueres (thought earlier to mean boar, but JRRT is pushing for a translation more akin to draught horse) First separate edition. Very uncommon, we've handled only one copy previously (and haven't seen another since). One recorded copy at auction. No copies located in academia; the BL has the later unauthorised reprint. An offprint from the Review of English Studies, Vol. I, No. 3 Hammond (C19). The contents were repaginated for the present issue, and may be identified as Tolkien?s third separately published work. A fine copy, maybe a little dulled. A few spots of foxing, an excellent copy. [8825, Hyraxia Books]. All items will be packed in bubble-wrap and either a cardboard book-wrap or a box where appropriate. All photos are of the actual item for sale. Further photos can be provided. Returns accepted; buyer pays for return unless we're at fault. [Hyraxia Books, 8825]
