My paperback copy from 1993 has me instead of be, but I don't have any earlier editions to check (of which there are not many, 2 hardbacks and 5 paperbacks) , apart from the 1st printing which has be.

Hello everyone,

I have a question for the experts on this forum, or really anyone who can answer it. :)

Just out of curiosity, is the following (to my mind rather funny) typo/misprint in the foreword of "Sauron Defeated" found in all first editions? And when was it corrected? (It IS corrected in my HarperCollins paperback edition, for example.)

"Since this book was set in type Mr Rateliff has pointed out to be the source of Arundel Lowdham's allusion to..." (p. x, ll. 9-10 from the bottom)

I apologize in advance if this has been asked (and answered) before...

Working on finding a source for us international (non Aus/NZ) folks.

In the meantime, HC has told me that the first and second impressions were each 22,000 copies.

So my copy of Flieger's Interrupted Music is a 2005 1st (Pb) edition, 1st impression would you say?

Typically it is the impression year.
