Tolkien, J. R. R. Middle English Losenger: Sketch of an etymological and semantic Enquiry.


Paris, France: Societe D'edition Les Belles Lettres, 1953. First Thus.

Reprinted from Essais de Philologie Moderne, 1951.
In original wraps, bearing a "From the Library of J.R.R. Tolkien" sticker on the bottom center of the cover, and a second one at the first free fly leaf.

Tolkien did not place these stickers on his personal books himself. At the time of his death, a large portion of his personal library was sold off, and a local entrepreneur bought a large quantity of the books and put these stickers on many of the unsigned volumes in order to preserve their provenance before selling them off.

A rare collectible from J.R.R. Tolkien's personal library.
