Questions posed to me (and I don't have this edition handy).

  • Is it sewn or glued? I'm positive its sewn but would like to confirm
  • What country was the first impression printed in?
  • If anyone has a later impression, what country is that printed in?

Thanks! That's for the first impression, I assume?

Yes it is. It’s a well put together volume.

I have a second impression and that was also printed at Clays and sewn.
