The Trumpets of Faerie

The Trumpets of Faerie refers to an unpublished book of poems by J.R.R. Tolkien. In 1916 Tolkien sent the original to Sidgwick & Jackson,for publication but was rejected. According to Douglas A. Anderson, Tolkien offered it to the Swan Press while he was at Leeds in the early 1920s "and was again turned down"; and after he returned to Oxford ‘he made one further attempt, and in the spring of 1926 the Oxford publisher Basil Blackwell turned it down’ .[1]
