Never seen one despite many years of searching. I did read in the A&U correspondence archive that they had a lot of trouble with the binding, so perhaps the number that made it out of the bindery was much less than the 20,000 copies printed.

Alternative theory- I don't have my notes on the correspondence to hand, but I wonder if there was an error in the impression numbering similar to the hardback edition, and the 16th Impression doesn't actually exist?

I'm sure I'm not the only one to ask him that very question (still waiting for a reply)!

Are you sure it actually sold or did he decide just to hang on to it?

I had bad luck on this one.

Since I am from Austria, I have asked the seller if he would post to me and for how much, but only a few minutes after his postive reply the books were gone.

Ohhh, by the way:
