Ahh Yes, the rare and elusive 1972 Seventh - Sixteenth - First Impression of the Third First Edition 1937.

Don't think I have one of those in my collection at the moment. Will most likely bid a small fortune to acquire this one.....

I actually ordered a copy (2 Volumes) from Amazon.ca last June (to ship to Ireland) along with a few other books. It Shipped in 15 days and was sent via DHL (though I only chose standard shipping).

Worked out much cheaper getting it from Canada, even though the UK is next door. At the time it was not available on any other of the Amazon sites, but in the last month is now available on the Amazon UK site.

If you replace the ".com" with ".co.uk", you will see the items. A quirk of Ebay wherby not all items listed in the UK appear on the US Site and vice-versa

I just measured both my sets. One 11.1cm and the other 11cm (the difference probably being due to the second one being tightly shrinkwrapped - If I measure the second set at the middle rather than the top of the slipcase, it measures 10.5cm - again due to the way the slipcase curves inward with the shrinkwrapping).

Interesting that there appears to be another variant. In any case my two seem to match your 11.2cm set.

My copies arrived just today. Dont know why it took so long (to Ireland). Very impressed with the packing.

Anyway, I ordered 2 copies by phone at the same time and I ended up with copies 38 and 14. Go figure! The allocation of the numbers all seems a little random.

Have not had time to open up and examine, but looking forward to doing that later.
