Re: Ebay Item which has one of the 'short' 7th impression UK 1st Edition

Probably 1,000 of these short copies were bound according to A&U correspondence, out of a total print run of A&U 4,000 copies.
The coloured top edge was also omitted.
Both errors due to Purnell & Sons, the printers/binders, who were also repsonsible for some copies of the 4th impression having silver lettering instead of gold.
