I'll probably bring it with me to Moreton, so you can see it then

This book is the first Print On Demand paperback from HarperCollins, if anyone buys a copy it would be interesting to see if any of these revisions were made.

Heavens! Don't want to think what you paid Trotter --way, way out of my league. Maybe I should buy you a drink in Moreton...

I meant to reply to this a few days back, Gawain. I had a good look at it on eBay & noticed that it was a 2nd impression he had corrected too. (Can't remember why I never bid on it --but you got it for a fair price if I recall.) Very nice. I think it's a great copy; pretty unique with the Shippey marginalia. It is unfortunate the annotations seem predominately to be corrections, with little comment. Thanks for posting. Tho', I don't have any editions of this work, so don't have anything meaningful to add.

I second that. A very nice piece, indeed!
