This volume collects papers delivered at The Friary in Beverley, Yorkshire on 24 June 1989 during the 4th Tolkien Society Workshop.

Dragons from Andrew Lang's retelling of Sigurd to Tolkien's Chrysophylax, a paper by Christina Scull, includes an extract from Tolkien's unpublished lecture on dragons. See pp.49-62, but especially p.59. Tolkien's lecture was delivered to a group of children on New Year’s Day 1938 at the University Museum.
