What I'm thinking now (speculatively) is that this resulted from a
cross-platform font interpretation problem (Mac-to-PC or ANSI-to-Unicode
or whatever). Perhaps it was originally typed as a copyright symbol (©),
for example, or a section symbol (§) and, in being imported into the
typsetting program used for the publication, was mapped to Æ. If nobody
caught it in proof, it could easily have made it to print.

I think if we had an example in context, we might be able to guess a
little better.
