Why would Random House ask for its own books???

In searching in the New York Times historic database, I ran across an
ad from Random House (December 8, 1968) addressing a plea to the
general public. The ad says (in part) "Random House is now revising
its entire Modern Library series and needs copies of these books..."
The ad includes a list of titles wanted "for editorial purposes and
for reproduction." See the ad here:
Some of the titles in the list had recently been published. So how
could it be that Random House didn't have copies of its own library
-- especially recently published titles?
"Great spirits have always encountered
violent opposition from mediocre minds."
