So, no changes to the text? A 2nd print run of the 1st edition? Anyone know if there are any changes being made to the text?

Hello everyone, delighted to hear that you're interested in our re-issue of George Allen & Unwin – A Remembrancer. Just to clarify, the hardback should be in stock in the UK 5 March. As soon as stock arrives, it will be available to buy through our website for £30 plus p&p and shortly afterwards you should be able to buy it from any UK bookshop or online seller. However, it will take a while to filter through to some overseas stores. The ebook edition (also £30) will be available 1 June across all ebook platforms. The first edition of George Allen & Unwin – A Remembrancer was published privately by Rayner Unwin in 1999, shortly before his death, and only 50 copies were published. This edition is a reissue (second printing of the first edition) but we have added a reproduction of Rayner Unwin's handwritten reader's report (written when we was 10 years old) recommending that The Hobbit should be published. We hope you enjoy it! Kind Regards, Merlin Unwin Books

You can see some sample pages on the website https://merlinunwin.co.uk/products/geo ... in?variant=34339769450627

Comparing the 1st printing, it looks like the pages have also been reset and it is a longer book, by about 2 pages, this could be due to the typeface size though.

Trotter, we have re-set the book to improve the layout and we've added Rayner's handwritten reader's report - so yes, it's so pages longer!

If you're able to re-confirm Merlin; is that correct, only 50 copies of the original ever made?!
That's a lot less than I thought.
