A detail (which nonetheless appears as a small enigma to me), is why Tolkien's letter from April 1970 to Tom Shippey is given an uncertain date ("?12 (received 13)") in the J.R.R. Tolkien Companion and Guide: Chronology, p. 749.

Shippey writes (in his Preface to the Second Edition, The Road to Middle-earth): "... the letter Professor Tolkien wrote to me on 13 April 1970". It seems like I'm missing some other reference to this letter - anyone knows where I can find it? Is the letter undated, or is it perhaps Shippey's ambiguous wording which has led to the uncertain dating in the Chronology?

Well, ebay has this (apparently same item) for US $39.99.





The Tolkien Shop has this (a similar item) for €30.00.

It went for only EUR 34.90 - a bargain! Anyone here got it?

Thank you for the replies, Urulókë and Findegil.

It's quite an interesting piece of publication history.

Interesting blog post from Douglas A. Anderson, concerning a letter co-signed by J.R.R. Tolkien and published in The Times, 28 January 1949:

Anyone knows where to buy vintage issues of The Times? Old newspapers are always hard to acquire (people tend to just throw them away!)...
