"Beneath the comments", garm? All I can see is comments.

I don't think they got it so wrong to be honest. Looking at the set it's hardly some publishing/printing travesty. For me it's just too expensive for a set that's already been published as a standard boxset twice (& there's very little difference, as Stu points out); and which previously had a better deluxe treatment anyway. I mean, this is the sort of HC "half deluxe" anyway, so I'm not clear what people were expecting. The other matching "deluxe" copies are just decent hardbacks by historical standards. There's nothing very deluxe about them.

I just had a look at my pocket H (2011) and it's as I recall; a first impression, with the cheaper paper as Stu describes. I definitely bought this at publication time online (BD) making no check on impression before purchase. Guess I must have got one of the few that got through.

But the first copies distributed in the UK didn't actually state that they were second impressions, is that not right? My copy is a marked first impression that I bought from BD at publication.
