As a matter of interest has anyone got a copy of this book with the dust jacket?

Christina and I have a copy of the book, but without the dust-jacket - this is one of our elusive wants too. It was definitely issued in a jacket, though. I saw one - just one - when writing the Descriptive Bibliography. It's a typical Oxford University Press type of jacket, dark blue type on grey paper, with OUP advertisements (dated January 1928) on the lower panel.

We've heard somewhere that when Houghton Mifflin granted Contemporary Books permission to reprint "Oliphaunt" they thought that it was going to be just one poem in an anthology, not a separate publication.

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.

The magazine is also only for book buying staff at Waterstones (the only big bookseller chain left in the United Kingdom, hence the exclusivity) and was not available to the general public.


Sorry, we weren't aware of that. It looks just like something that would, and could, be distributed to book buyers in general.
