This is a shame, as I don't buy books from Amazon! :/

True reprints are really hard to come by...

I haven't checked if it's been relisted yet, but the Bodleian also made a mistake with the price. It's going to be more than £275, with no hint of any better features. Think I'll spend the money on a trip down to exhibition instead.

Cancelled my order last night & the refund process went through this morning; as Stu said, very promptly handled. I cited the lack of features in comparison to the Marks of Genius edition (as an example); not signed, no slipcase, no goatskin binding, and £75 more expensive (MoG was only published two years ago). Will keep an eye on whether things change but not holding my breath.

I think the problem here is "established hardcore collectors (renowned collectors)" probably prefer not to collect rebound books.
