Includes Tolkien’s glossary - A Middle English Vocabulary. See page 293 onwards.

Fourteenth Century Verse & Prose was also issued separately without Tolkien's glossary. Copies in a dark red binding include the glossary, whereas copies in a blue coloured binding do not. The only exceptions to this are the 9th and 10th Impressions of 1948 and 1950, where both variants were issued in the blue binding. Copies without the glossary were issued in a grey coloured dustwrapper of similar design.

Seven impressions issued, all similar:

9th Impression 1948
10th Impression 1950
11th Impression 1955
12th Impression 1959
13th Impression 1962
14th Impression 1964
15th Impression 1967

The text was corrected for the 11th Impression.
