Eddison studied at Trinity. The inscription reads 'Presented to the Library of Trinity College, Oxford, by the author, E. R. Eddison, February 1935' followed by a note in Greek (something about chestnuts and Aphrodite? - Aphrodite being the model for Eddison's goddess in the book). The first in the author's acclaimed trilogy, with volumes two and three following in 1941 and 1958. Eddison was an occasional Inkling, and his work was highly praised by Tolkien and Lewis.
