As I don't seem to find an existing topic concerning nice bookshop/internet finds, feel free to post your most recent, interesting additions here!

Mine is a first edition copy of An Edition of þe liflade ant te passiun of seinte iuliene by Tolkien's protégé Simonne d'Ardenne, with a written dedication by the same. Lucky find in an Oxfam bookshop (in Ghent, Belgium)!

Recently acquired some hard-to-find volumes of academic contributions by Tolkien at a (very) good price. There are two copies which I can't recall having seen before, i.e. the one-volume edition of The Review of English Studies 1925 and the 1966 paperback reprint of Essays and Studies vol. XIV. Since they are currently not listed on, I was wondering if you are aware of these particular editions, Deagol? I am also willing to provide pictures of the covers of the Medium Ævum reprints (I see these are lacking on, although there's not much to see...

Onónion, sorry for taking so long to reply. I've been unwell lately and recovering from surgery.

I have owned a copy of RES 1925 in the publisher's binding for quite a while but didn't get around to adding it to the site.

I have the 1929 Essays and Studies reprint, but my copy is in a library binding I think, so if I can use your image that would be great. Would you like a credit?

Medium Ævum reprints - are your copies in a publisher's binding or a library binding? I would be interested to see images of the title page, etc.

Yep, I'll second that -- all the best for a speedy recovery!

Hope you are well, and getting better by the day, Deagol. Take care!

I have taken some more detailed pictures and can e-mail these if you wish. Just send me a pm with your e-mail address.
The Medium Aevum reprints are in the publisher's binding. No need to credit me, I'm happy to contribute to your excellent website.
