Tolkien: Cult or Culture?

I'd been looking (somewhat longingly) for this for some time - a collection of essays that were the product of a Tolkien seminar at the University of New England (in Australia) in 1969.

This is a 2012 reprint of the 1969 original, which popped up on Oxfam Books in the UK. Even the reprint seems very scarce, so I feel lucky to have stumbled across it at the right time

Well done on finding that, does seem very rare, and I have not found copies for sale.

Thank you LanceFormation and Trotter. Yes it was something of a sweaty-palms moment!

Thanks for sharing, great find! I would be interested to know how much, if at all, the "Anglo-Catholic Oxford" essay might align with (or perhaps discuss uncovered territory from) Holly Ordway's recent writing about Tolkien's Catholic experience at Oxford in Tolkien's Faith.
