Do you happen to know when the translator/Found Document frame of the Book of Lost Tales emerged? The title suggests it was fairly early, but the only explicit linking of Eriol's hearing the tales to a physical book is the "Golden Book of Tavrobel" fragment or note, which I have a vague impression is late.

While trying to find a relevant 19th century story I can't remember the title of (no luck yet). I stumbled across the Wikipedia article on time travel in LotR, which is longer than the "Time travel in fiction" article. o.O
