Title: Ancrene Wisse Author: J. R. R. Tolkien Publisher: Oxford University Press______________________________________________________________ Year: 1962 First EditionNumber of Pages: 222Size: 22cm Width x 14.5cm HeightContents Ancrene Wisse is J.R.R. Tolkien's edition of the Ancrene Riwle, a thirteenth century manuscript known as MS. CCCC 402 or MS. Corpus Christi College Cambridge 402 - A Rule for Nunnes or Recluses - Ancrene Wisse. The book also includes a Prefatory Note by J.R.R. Tolkien and an Introduction by N.R. Ker.
