Since the only copyright notice in the book is to the Peterson Publishing Company, there's no acknowledgment of Tolkien's copyright, there's no mention of permission to reprint his poem, and Childs World at one time had the whole of the book online at Scribd, it's no wonder that the Tolkien Estate might object. We do wonder if the publisher knew that "Oliphaunt" is protected intellectual property, or believed that The Lord of the Rings had lost its American copyright, which it never did. Childs World issued Oliphaunt as one of a series of single poems for children, and all of the others, by either Robert Louis Stevenson or Edward Lear, are old enough to be in the public domain.

I heard from HarperCollins that this edition had been reported to the Estate for review - there clearly is some confusion over it between the publisher and the Estate.

As far as I know the dispute has not been resolved yet, but it appears that the Estate asked the publisher to remove it from sale and the publisher complied.

Does anyone know why this was withdrawn from sale? I had ordered a copy from BD before it became unavailable (and it finally arrived today more than 5 weeks after being posted -- I had given it up for lost). I notice that the copyright states "(c) 2012" (rather than 2011) and I wondered if it perhaps had to be pulled because of legal reasons related to this...

I know some of our members have an interest in A.A. Milne and the fantastic illustrator E.H. Shepard and may be interested in the following.

Peter Harrington is very pleased to announce the exhibition and sale of the most comprehensive collection of Winnie-the-Pooh books and artwork ever assembled. Including more than one hundred items gathered together over twenty years by American football legend Pat McInally, the collection includes fine examples of all the Pooh books, important inscribed copies, correspondence and photos, toys, and original artwork. This is not only the best Pooh collection ever to come to market, but a superb example of the art of collecting, and everything that a lifetime collection in a single field should be. Illustrated below are some of the highlights, including the stand-out piece, a presentation copy of Winnie-the-Pooh inscribed from Milne to both Christopher Robin and Winnie-the-Pooh. An exhibition of the material will be held in our gallery at 100 Fulham Road from Wednesday the 30th of November to Wednesday the 14th of December. The exhibition is free and open to the public, and paper and digital copies of the catalogue can be obtained by contacting us.
