Are we sure HC knows about the error? No one has noticed it up until now, as far as I know...

I had previously seen it mentioned, but I can't remember where. Wasn't here. Likely no one has mentioned it to HC, mind.

Same here - saw it somewhere else, but can't remember where (thought it was here, but no evidence). I'll leave it to Trotter to bring up with HC I think.

Actually, it was here :D

I actually picked up a copy of this though I wasn't intending to (low price + 1EUR shipping to NZ from Kennys). I must admit when comparing the 1992 edition to the new one, I think the 1992 is mostly better. They have gone overboard on digital cleanup and a lot of texture seems to have been washed out when removing specs of dirt. The picture from the following page is sometimes a bit noticeable bleeding through as well. Nice enough book, but the older, slightly larger format was a bit better, IMHO.

I would agree with that. When I got the new edition I did a cursory comparison with the '92 and '79 editions and it just seems to me that paper quality and image reproduction is just not as good. Also I was surprised at just how much smaller it was than the 1st and 2nd editions. One thing I do like is what they did with the case. Always thought the 2nd edition needed something like that.

I'm sure that HC already know about this, but have contacted them about the issue.

HC have already rectified the issue and any reprints should not have this error in them.
