Says it's a 4th printing. There is only one edition of this, correct? So it would be the 4th print run of the edition from the early 90's?

Yes, this is just a standard reprint. The text hasn't been updated, as far as I/we know.

I went ahead and ordered a copy, since I currently have no printings

This was actually a great read and still a must have reference.

The fourth printing was in 2012, so I'm interested to see if this is - in fact - a 5th printing.

Curious about this too and wrote to Oak Knoll. They say they just found 10 misplaced copies and 3 have already been sold. So it's still the same 4th print and it seems it will be out of stock again shortly.

Ah, I did actually wonder if it was simply misplaced copies that turned up, as there were 9 listed on Abe. One of them was sold to me, by the way, prior to Urulókë posting, as I saw it on Abe, but then went to their own website - with Abe I have to pay NZ GST @ 15%.

24 hours after, 6 days before the end, and the bid is already at 310 £. I don't understand the point to bid at this rate so soon.
