A Concordance to Beowulf., J B Bessinger, Editor.
1 A Concordance to Beowulf. J B Bessinger, Editor.
Cornell University Press. 1971 Hard Cover Very Good No Jacket 
A very good bright clean unworn 373 page hardback book with some very light foxing on top edge.. University library sale stamp on front endpaper, but no circulation markings - this book was probably a donation which was immediately put out for sale without ever being shelved. Also on the front endpaper is the clear signature of "Gildas Roberts, St John's, 4.x.85 ". Gildas Roberts, while a professor of English at Memorial University of Newfoundland at St John's, wrote "Beowulf: A New Translation into Modern English Verse", published in 1984, making this an interesting association copy. Dr Roberts died in Bangor, North Wales, in 2001 at the age of only 68, having succumbed to injuries sustained in an accident. Red cloth, silver titling to front and spine. A nice example for your library.
