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!)...

The 1989 Calico edition of Oliphaunt says it was reprinted with the permission of Houghton Mifflin Co.

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?

Yes, I also noticed the lack of adequate copyright attribution when I gave it a closer inspection. Seems like an odd thing for a publisher to get wrong, though. I would have expected that IP rights and authorisation would be the very first things to address before even embarking on such a project.

Nice little book, mind. Might even end up being rare...
