Reader's note

A First Edition - Second Impression of Tree and Leaf by J.R.R. Tolkien, published 1964. Fairy-stories are not just for children, as anyone who has read Professor Tolkien will know. The taste for them is a natural one, at any age. In his essay, On Fairy-stories, which forms the first part of this book, he rescues them, on the one hand, from the academics - the philologists and the anthropologists - and, on the other, from those who would relegate them to ‘juvenilia’. The second part contains, as an apt and beautiful illustration, one of Professor Tolkien’s earlier short stories, Leaf by Niggle. Like the later and more generous The Lord of the Rings, it shows his mastery of the art of ‘sub-creation’, the power to give to fantasy ‘the inner consistency of reality’. This vintage book is one among a bounty of stunning classic literature vintage books and obscure gems on our second hand bookstore!
