It would be interesting to see a picture of the Index page with the typo, if someone could post one.


Very remiss not to provide any pictures, here are one of the dust jacket, one showing my unusual binding and one showing the typos. There are two typos, HarperCollins and the date (2010) appear in a very strange font, and they also forgot to include the full ISBN, just left the end blank.

I have decided I am going to keep mine. If only 30 dispatched and maybe a few returned they may be worth something more than £40 paid in 20 or so years! Can live in hope

It also omits the credit line 'Compiled by Helen Armstrong' which appears above the ISBN in the original printing. (Unless this has been moved elsewhere in the print-on-demand copies.)

It has been moved to the Title Page.

I got my replacement version of the Index from HarperCollins, the typos have been fixed and this copy was bound correctly. I think it is a really nice book now and goes very well with the other 12 hardback volumes.
