  • "This story [was] originally published in different form under the title: 'The garden under the Sea'." --noted in WorldCat record of a 1974 Avon Camelot ed., OCLC 270657683, probably quoting the book; one dealer at ABEbooks notes the same, except including the word "was", about one copy of the 1966 Harper & Row ed.
  • The de Grummond Children's Literature Collection, U of Southern Mississippi, catalog of the George Selden Papers (USM.edu, above) lists materials associated with "Oscar Lobster's Fair Exchange (1966)" thus: "Galley for chapters 1-13, edited and labeled 'Master Proof,' 23 March 1966, 55 sheets", without comment that the material is not original.
