Your permission request must give the title of the book, author, material, copyright date etc. as it appears in the acknowledgment and should be directed to the party indicated as having given permission.
If the book is a paperback, please check the copyright page carefully for information indicating that the paperback was published by arrangement with another publisher and/or that a previously published hardcover was published by another publisher.
