This volume collects together the four issues of The Review of English Studies published in 1925.

It contains Tolkienís essays Some Contributions to Middle-English Lexicography (from Vol.1, No. 2) and The Devil's Coach-Horses (from Vol.1, No. 3).

See pp.210-215 and pp.331-336.

In Part I of Some Contributions to Middle-English Lexicography Tolkien discusses aspects of a variety of Middle English words and their Modern English meanings. Part II consists of a series of notes on the glossary to the Early English Text Society Edition of Hali Meidenhad.

The Devil's Coach-Horses 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.

This volume comprises the four quarterly issues, stripped of their covers and bound in one volume with eight pages of preliminary matter. Subscribers could send their copies to the publisher for binding, or purchase a binding case for their own binder to utilize.
