Ancrene Wisse, very uncommon to find, let alone one with the scarce glassine dustjacket, particularly in this lovely condition
> Enquire about this book
This is the 1962 First Printing of Ancrene Wisse, the English text of the Ancrene Riwle, see Hammond B25, edited by and containing a prefatory note by J.R.R. Tolkien.
Published by the Oxford University Press for The Early English Text Society, the number of copies was limited to 3000.
The book is in Near Fine condition, with the spine very slightly knocked.
No previous owners names or any writing noted in the book.
There is a couple of tape ghosts on the front free endpaper, very likely from an early dustjacket protector which protected the fragile glassine dustjacket very well.
The dustjacket is only lightly soiled and has some very minor chipping at the fold areas, and a small closed tear at the spine head on the back corner.
Very uncommon to find a copy, let alone one with the scarce glassine dustjacket, particularly in this lovely condition.
A removable protective holder has been added to protect it in the future.
Digital photo's available, inquire if interested.
