Yip! Earlier today Amazon.com stated it had been shipped to UK as well. Although '22nd Sept' is estimated arrival in UK!

Sounds good. Don't know about later impressions specifically lacking particular features; but vol's 1-4 (first impressions) have dyed top page edges.

Interestingly Andy at ADCbooks states that a copy of BoLTs I 1rst/1rst passed through his hands without dye; and that this was as issued (i.e. no sign of faded dye under scrutiny with magnifying glass.) Which all sounds perfectly possible with HoME...

Still pretty confused about this publication!

Thornton's state that the 'for friends' copies were run on from the original run (of 100?); and are 1 of 12 i.e. the marbled boards copy recently for sale. I bought this, and it is not marked, lettered, or numbered in any way; although obviously it is hard bound unlike all other copies.

Indeed! I've never seen this fabled publication. Something to look forward to...

Damn it! It's now £2.48 (49p + £1.99 sourcing fee). Still seems rather cheap though...
