Fourteen Century Verse & Prose, edited by Kenneth Sisam, with a Middle English Vocabulary by J.R.R. Tolkien. A Very Good copy in a Very Good Plus dustjacket.
This is the eighth printing, 1946, of the 1921 publication of this book.
Originally issued seperately, this printing has the Glossary by J.R.R. Tolkien, bound with the book.
The book is a nice bright crimson cloth, with clean and bright gilt to the spine, but has a bump that has split the cloth at the top of the front panel.
The dustjacket has a corresponding closed tear (approx 3/8") to the split. The top and bottom of the spine show some rubbing and minor loss, but overall the dustjacket presents very nicely, with only the slightest toning to the spine. A small previous owner's name to the front free endpaper, with a few light pencil notations to the text, easily erased if so desired. Actually helps with the translation of the Middle English, so I have not erased them.
A very nice copy with like dustjacket of a very desirable book.
