Includes a brief extract from a letter to Richard Lupoff in which Tolkien denies any influence from the writings of Edgar Rice Burroughs on the creation of Shelob - see pp.276-277.

* Dated as 1968, but contains Introduction to the Centennial Edition - the E.R.B. Centennial was in 1975.

A similar edition (also dated 1968) used the same artwork, but had a different ISBN: 0441187711. The ISBN for this edition (0441187722) is one higher, so it seems safe to assume that it is later, perhaps dating from 1978.

Part of the extract was reprinted in Orcrist (Issue 4, 1969-70).
