Sir Gawain and the Green Knight is a scholarly edition of the Middle English romance. Using a number of sources of information, including Tolkien's later notes on the subject, Norman Davis revised Tolkien and Gordon's earlier work - largely rewriting the Introduction, Notes and appendices on Metre and Language in the process.

Reprinted in 1968(?) and 1977, and probably several more times as well. The size of the book (but not the text) was reduced for the reprints, from 22.2x14.4cm to 20.8x14.0cm - because the hardback edition was printed at the same time as the paperback edition.

Precise details are unavailable, but at least some of the paperback impressions were also available in hardback format. For further information see the impression details for the 1968 paperback edition.
