The journal is divided into two parts:

The Alphabet of Rúmil (edited by Arden R. Smith) includes twenty six examples of the Rúmilian Alphabet. The fragments are of varying length and date, most of which are reproduced in facsimile together with extensive commentary by the editor. (See pp.3-89)

Early Noldorin Fragments (edited by Christopher Gilson, Bill Welden, Carl F. Hostetter and Patrick Wynne) draws together eight documents that are all concerned with early developments in the Noldorin language. These include a variety of word-lists, a grammar and a dictionary. Three heraldic devices, representing Great Hayward, Warwick and Cheltenham, are reproduced in facsimile. (See pp.91-166)
