The Year’s Work in English Studies Volume V, 1924; Edited for The English Association Editors: F. S. Boas and C. H. Herford Publisher: The English Association, Oxford University Press, London Publication Date: 1926 Binding: Hard Cover Edition: 1st Edition / 1st Impression Item Description: Hard Cover. 1st Ed. 22 x 14 cm., 328 pp. 1200 copies printed. See Hammond B8, pp. 287-288. Includes review essay, ‘Philology: General Works’, by J. R. R. Tolkien, pp. 26-65. This covers philological books and articles published in 1924. In his introduction Tolkien comments on the increasing number and scope of philological publications and blurring of the lines between philology and related disciplines. As with the previous volume, Tolkien discusses the latest section of the OED to be published (Whisking-Wilfulness) which includes some of the words he worked on during his time at the Dictionary. Wove paper. Bound in grey-brown paper over boards. Spine stamped in black. Wove endpapers. Top edge trimmed, bottom and fore-edges untrimmed. CONDITION. Very Good. Overall tight binding and text in good condition internally. Small neat ownership inscription on first blank page, else no marks, underlining or torn pages. Housed in a removable Brodart protector. A scarce and wonderful find for the Tolkien enthusiast and collector. Especially in this condition. It would look great on your bookshelf with The Year’s Work in English Studies Vol. IV, 1923 and The Year’s Work in English Studies Vol. VI, 1925 which I also have for sale.
