My question to Trotter, and particularly to Wayne & Christina, is: do your copies carry the original printed price? --or have they been re-priced?
My copy also has the original printed price £4.95.
One last (picky!) point to Trotter. The separate Clowes 'printings' (as you call them) are states. And, the Unwin Brothers 5th impression also had the intermediate GA&U-paper state (like Clowes); as well as the GA&U-cloth state, and the BCA copy. (Unrecorded, I'm sure for space reasons!, by Hammond...)
I was thinking more of the printing change on page 352 (italic and nonitalic and in the Ulmo entry) of the book than the difference between the headbands, and paper and cloth bindings, which is why I describe them as printings and not states.
3 printings - 1st with the and in italics, 2nd with the and not in italics and 3rd as a Second Impression.
