Nah, I'm not too worried about not having ordered two copies up front. I think the number is fairly academic anyway (although number 3 certainly does have a nice ring to it!)

I'm not sure about whether copies 1 and 2 were sold or given (as you suspect to CT and AL) . My address label apparently had No.3, (P?)1-1 and the shipping reference on it. I'm assuming the 1-1 simply refers to it being the first printing?

However, my worldpay cart ID was 151. It might be assumed that the first transaction was 150, which could well be someone buying copies 1 and 2. Just speculation, of course!

Nice?!
Academic indeed...

I was at work on the 19th, I can't just go surfing and checking my email like some!

Actually, I was also at work that day, but the 9 hour time-difference between Perth and the UK played to my advantage - There have to be some advantages to being stuck hanging off the bottom of the planet !!! :)

I've always liked those southern hemisphere focused world maps and globes that are reversed (south is towards to top) - a nice perspective on things. After all, North is completely arbitrary...

Yep, north and south are pretty arbitrary, but given that those pesky Europeans drew the first world maps (and they also favour that annoying Mercatur projection which makes Western Europe look huge and Australia look the size of a dry-roasted peanut), I have grown to accept that I am dwelling on the underbelly of the planet :)

More importantly, my second [Australia-bound] copy of the CoH arrived today (number 97 -- which is kind of nice as my two copies neatly add up to 100). It's an impressive book and the colour is much nicer than it appeared in some of those eBay photos.

Now we all just have to hope that HC don't give up on trying to sell them direct and end up putting them on Amazon heavily discounted. That would be kind of annoying!
