Nice addition! Those old Essays and Studies are hard to find online without a lot of patience (or luck) primarily due to the generic title matching a lot of dreck.

Beautifully fragile 1672 Hervarar (Heiðreks) Saga, which I believe was Translated in 1960 by Christopher Tolkien as King Heindrek the Wise. Along with some linked Tolkien edits.

Big congratulations Rob. First swedish translation. I considered this myself, but money went elsewhere. Happy it found a good home!
