Reprints Tolkien's essay The Devil's Coach-Horses from The Review of English Studies.

The essay discusses eaueres, a word found in the 1922 Early English Text Society Edition of Hali Meidenhad. Tolkien suggests that rather than meaning boar, the word should be translated as draught horse.

Although dated 1925 the text is printed in Monotype Bembo, a typeface cut in 1929. Therefore it can be assumed that this publication dates from after this time, possibly from the 1980s.
