Rockwell Kent objected to this book. “Kent posed a complaint against the illustrations in the volume, claiming they are inferior and plagiarizing his own work. From the letter: "I am sorry that it is not the policy of the Book Club to supervise more carefully the production of the books that appear within its imprint. I feel the book of Thel, irrespective of the plagiarism involved in the illustrations, has been very badly illustrated." PBA Galleries. (Inventory #: 109863)
