Includes Eldarin Hands, Fingers & Numerals and Related Writings - Part One edited by Patrick H. Wynne. This is Part I of a four-part collection of late texts (c.1968).

Part I includes:

Eldarin Hands, Fingers & Numerals - an unfinished "historical-philological" essay by Tolkien that discusses Eldarin words for hands, fingers and toes, and shows how the finger names were related to numbers.

Also included is a related essay concerning the numerical stems neter 9, kanat 4 and enek 6; and extensive notes by the editor that draw on Tolkien's contemporary unpublished writings.
