This covers philological books and articles published in 1923. It includes a fairly lengthy discussion of two newly published sections of the OED (Wash-Wavy and Wh-Whisky) which may include some words that Tolkien worked on during his time at the Dictionary.

See pp.20-44.

The book states that it was published in 1924, but it was not issued until 8 January 1925.

1,250 copies printed.
