On offer is a super manuscript relic of English literature study and the state of one of England's premier universities. Professor J.R.R. Tolkein and others lecture and provide a detailed study of English literature at Oxford University in 1942 meticulously written by undergraduate student Mary Turner who does a superb job of keeping detailed notes in a loose-leaf folder with approximately 380 manuscript pages of lecture notes, essays, exam questions and translations of Anglo-Saxon texts. About 130 pages relate directly to Tolkien's lectures on Beowulf and other Anglo-Saxon works such as The Wanderer, Caedmon etc. We note at least seven direct references to Tolkien in lecture headings and the text, and one mention of 'The Hobbit'. The remaining notes relate to other authors and topics covered in the course e.g. Milton's Paradise Lost, Shakespeare, Marlowe, Webster, Swift, Pope, Addison, Samuel Johnson, The Romantic Movement, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Keats, Morte D'Arthur, Dryden, Donne, Marvell etc.
