Tree and Leaf (Unwin Books 1974)

This is the 9th impression, first published by London’s Unwin Books in this edition 1964. I rather like the graphic design on this version. The cleverly titled Tree and Leaf contains Tolkien’s seminal essay On Fairy-stories, in which he describes the art of sub-creation, plus the allegorical short-story Leaf by Niggle. Other than Tolkien’s own introductory note, there are no other texts included in this volume.
