ADD TO WISHLIST

London, Sidgwick & Jackson, 1925. First Edition. First Impression. Paperback. A rare Tolkien piece, an essay examining the word Eaueres (thought earlier to mean boar, but JRRT is pushing for a translation more akin to draught horse) First separate edition. Very uncommon, we've handled only one copy previously (and haven't seen another since). One recorded copy at auction. No copies located in academia; the BL has the later unauthorised reprint. An offprint from the Review of English Studies, Vol. I, No. 3 Hammond (C19). The contents were repaginated for the present issue, and may be identified as Tolkien?s third separately published work. A fine copy, maybe a little dulled. A few spots of foxing, an excellent copy. [8825, Hyraxia Books].
