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.

Trotter, I'll probably be down for the Moreton event. I went in 2007 for the CoH launch, couldn't get down in 2008, but attended again in 2009 --it was pretty good. But, I have no firm plans as yet, as it is literally a 1000 miles round trip from Aberdeen, & the drive is in excess of 8 hours. That said, if you're there at the end, and your buying, then I may fix those plans! --no, seriously, I'll probably be down for Friday & Saturday (& Saturday evening).

I ain't going to Festival in the Shire. It sounds very promising, but the money is prohibitive, what with travelling down costs too.

Not sure about the name change garm, but I report this item every time I see it. The last story was that it was found at a car boot sale I think. eBay, whether true or not, say they'll only suspend accounts if there are multiple breaches. I guess if a fair amount of us report these every time they are listed, the complaints will build up.
