This is volume one in the Oxford English Monographs series. J.R.R. Tolkien was one of the General Editors for the series. In the introduction Turville-Petre says: "It would be difficult to overestimate all that I owe to Professor Tolkien; his sympathy and encouragement have been constant and, throughout the work, I have had the benefit of his wide scholarship."
