LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
George G Harrap, London - first edition, 1967. hardcover, 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", with dust jacket. Ours is an ex-library copy in transparent protective covering (with 2" cut to front), with usual stamps, stickers, barcode. Jacket 'blurb' mounted on half-title page. VERY GOOD book in VERY GOOD price-clipped dust jacket. Dark-blue cloth-bound boards with white type to spine, select bibliography, and index. The author was long acclaimed internationally for his varied contributions to Anglo-Saxon studies, especially during his seventeen-years tenure as Professor of Anglo-Saxon at Oxford University. He brings to this book not only mature and lively scholarship, but a rare ability to interest the beginner and general reader as well as the specialist. It covers poetry that is heroic or epic, elegaic, religious and gnomic, and prose that is didactic, expository and historical.
