Reprinted on a folded four page sheet with Volume 1, Issue 1 of Tolkien Journal.

On pages 1-2, The Ace Books Controversy by Dick Plotz includes extracts from a letter in which Tolkien relates details of the saga of the Ace Books Edition of The Lord of the Rings.

The extract was reprinted in Orcrist Issue 4 (1969-1970),as part of An Ace Mystery: Did Tolkien Write His Own Retraction by Bonniejean Christensen.

Tolkien Notes from All Over (on page 3) includes a plea from Tolkien for an explanation of the cover of the Ballantine - "Can any member of the T.S.A. tell me what a lion and emus are doing in the vignette, or what is the thing with pink bulbs in the foreground? The publishers won't say and merely sob because I don't approve."
