Thanks Wellinghall! A normal day at work for me, but a nice book being published tomorrow to put some icing on it.

I don't recall seeing a dustjacketed copy of this, either. I am sure someone lurking here (Findegil? Bernd?) has one tucked away, if one does exist.

I will hazard a guess that the line "To commemorate the 75th anniversary of publication" will just be dropped from the packaging - as you say, Stu, to the average buyer it will not have any material impact.

I hope to be able to share more details on this edition soon, but have been asked to wait.
