typo/misprint in foreword of "Sauron Defeated"

Subject: typo/misprint in foreword of "Sauron Defeated"
by felagund on 2011/10/27 3:41:42

Hello everyone,

I have a question for the experts on this forum, or really anyone who can answer it. :)

Just out of curiosity, is the following (to my mind rather funny) typo/misprint in the foreword of "Sauron Defeated" found in all first editions? And when was it corrected? (It IS corrected in my HarperCollins paperback edition, for example.)

"Since this book was set in type Mr Rateliff has pointed out to be the source of Arundel Lowdham's allusion to..." (p. x, ll. 9-10 from the bottom)

I apologize in advance if this has been asked (and answered) before...
