It is good to have new blood. Can get a bit quiet!

Yep, have also uploaded one which shows the correct colour misregistration (if you look at the commercial facsimiles, all the misregistration is removed and the runes are kind of marker-penish)

Yeah, BD still has the old description. Asking for trouble (and refund requests), I fear.

Someone should really try and write a longish article on the WHOLE genesis of this edition, the ordering process etc. :)



I concur. I honestly have no idea what the hype about this book is, and I can't find any information anywhere about what makes it special (other than that it caters to people who can't afford a true first edition).


That is the only thing that make it special. But as Trotter pointed out, the edition is legendary for its lateness.

(I think the "hype" probably involves a very small number of people -- I don't personally see this is being a huge mainstream thing of interest)
