BEOWULF: A Translation and Commentary, together with Sellic Spell

Norwalk, Connecticut: The Easton Press, 2014. Hardcover. Collector's Edition. Tolkien completed his translation of Beowulf in 1926: he returned to it later to make hasty corrections, but seems never to have considered its publication. This edition includes an illuminating written commentary on the poem by the translator himself, drawn from a series of lectures he gave at Oxford in the 1930s. Edited by Christopher Tolkien. Octavo. Full blue leather binding, with elaborate gilt stamping, three raised bands, moire silk endpapers, and a ribbon marker. An unsigned (blank) Easton Press bookplate is affixed to the verso of the front flyleaf. A fine copy. Fine. Item #69051

Price: $300.00
