Thanks Trotter, I don't have that version so it is really helpful.
I will post other excerpts from the same page in a few minutes.

This text starts on the third line of page 66 in Tolkien's essay On Fairy-Stories in the book Essays presented to Charles Williams (Oxford University Press 1947).

Thanks for comment Deagol.

It states at the beginning of the page:

''Since C. S. Lewis, in his article which follows, refers to Mr. Tolkien's essay, '' On Fairy-Stories'', as ''perhaps the most important contribution to the subject that anyone has yet made,''we quote from it here with the permission of Oxford University Press''

So it looks they quote from British 1947. version. :)

At a guess I think this reprinted excerpt will be from the Tree and Leaf version published in the US in 1965.

Horn Book also reprinted an excerpt from The Hobbit in 1938 (IIRC).

TolkienBooks doesn't record American editions/reprints unless the original wasn't published in the UK.
