Another Higgins letter, can't remember seeing this piece of rubbish before as so many have turned up recently.

The UK spelling of cheque is used in the letter on the left, so I agree that it is very surprising that the US spelling check is in use in the right letter. I am sure that Joy Hill would not type cheque as check.

There is also nothing really tying these letters to this copy of the book, the letters refer to a signed US copy but they are reproductions and how do we know it is this copy that is referred to?

I don't think these were posters but would love to be proved wrong

By the way I got pretty much the same answers from David, but notably he did not answer whether the pagination will be the same (so the paperback index will work for the new hardcovers, and vice versa) - this could easily be just an oversight but I am a tad concerned. Just have to get a copy and see! There are editorial changes to all volumes in the new HoME editions to correct various errors that have been found since the last editions were set.


We have already established that the UK paperback and UK hardback's have exactly the same pagination, so a hardback index will work with the UK hardbacks. HC need to be careful when editing the books to make sure that the pagination remains the same, which is my main worry about this.

If anyone has the HC and HM hardbacks, are the page numbers the same, so does this index work for HM hardbacks?

Another "leather" item, never seen this box set described as "leather" before though
