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!)...

Just out of curiosity (since I don't have the older book) - did the publishers of the 1989 Oliphaunt: Beastly Verse receive permission to reprint the poem, or did it also fail to acknowledge Tolkien's copyright?

Thank you, garm.

It was good to learn that Hooper cited from what was published as letter 300 - I can see that this letter was written in 1968 so it would indeed have been odd to find it in a 1939 book!

Does anyone happen to have both Rehabilitations and Other Essays and Selected Literary Essays? Both appear to contain the essay "The Alliterative Metre", and I wonder if the essays are identical in both books.

(Was thinking of buying Rehabilitations and Other Essays just to check if it quotes from a Tolkien letter, but the cheapest copy goes for £200.00 at Amazon.co.uk!)
