That letter is also reproduced on the Tolkien Gateway wiki in a considerably higher resolution (1,302 × 1,665 px):

Nothing like the word "test" and the instruction to ignore to bring out the creative witticism of the denizens of the internet ... :)

Thank you for the explanation and the link, Urulókë. I suspected that this might be so, but in Denmark this situation seems to be handled outside the law text of the main copyright law.

One thing to consider also is the independent scholars who do not have access to an academic library (not all academic libraries will do interlibrary loan — particularly of rare books — to public libraries).

The field of Tolkien studies in fact have very many such independent scholars without an academic affiliation, just as there are a number of private collectors whose collections are better supplied than most academic libraries, so there might more often be a call for this kind of help.

I do hope that someone with a copy of the poem can make a photocopy and send to Eduardo.

I am by no means an expert on copyright (far from it, I'd say), but I have tried to understand — or at least read — the Danish copyright law, which is what normally applies to myself.

Under that law, I can legally make an analogue copy of a work that I have legal access to, e.g. photocopy parts of a book, for my own private use. Thus, even if I had a copy of the relevant issue of The Oxford Magazine, I would not, as I understand it, be allowed to create a copy for you.

On the other hand it is my impression (and I emphasize that this is an impression only) that there is a long tradition in academic / scholarly circles of helping others with photocopies of hard-to-get works. If this impression is correct, there might be some provisions for limited copies for research purposes, though I don't know these (another possibility is of course that it is instead a silent agreement by which everybody wink at a practice which, though not entirely legal, still benefits everybody).

Not very helpful, I'm afraid, but then I am in any case not in a position to help you with the poem, since I don't have any copy of it myself.

I just wish this had happened at a time when I had the money ready :)
