great description, my local B&N had several old and new additions, made it a breeze to walk out with the updated printing

Re: Lovecraft Leatherbound Edition

My B&N Complete Fiction has arrived. Yes it has silver edges and a purple ribbon. Just started reading it and am now reading Polaris. Yes I know I've read them before but it's a wonderful book. Well done Martin. It's gorgeous.

Thanks! But really, I don't think the credit belongs to me. B&N came through beautifully in the end.

Perhaps, and they do deserve credit for reissuing it in corrected form. But without your efforts, this would not have been possible, either. Credit where credit is due, I think....

Re: Lovecraft Leatherbound Edition

First of all, cheers to You Mr Andersson for the splendid work!

Could someone confirm whether the edition sold on Amazon.co.uk is the corrected one?

By now, it should be. If possible, specify that you want silvered page edges and a purple ribbon.

Just to be sure I tried asking the store directly, and to my positive surprise, they answered almost as swiftly as You did (thanks for that btw!).
So now I can personally confirm, that thankfully it's indeed the corrected edition. Can't wait to get my hands on it!

I'm still a bit torn though, since the completionist/perfectionist in me wants both the complete collection, and the annotations contained in the Penguin editions. Oh woe is me

As a side note, apparently a "new" error slipped through - the Contents page lists an "About the Author" section on p. 1099, which is actually missing (it was there in the previous edition). Time for another reprint?

Heh... That's what I did -- got them all, that is.

Yup, I know about that. I pointed it out to Stefan D., and he replied:

I know how this happened. When we translated the Lovecraft volume from our Library of Essential Writers to the leatherbound format, we had to get rid of backmatter, including the "About the Author" note. We deleted the "About the Author" reference in the TOC of the first printing of the leatherbound by having the printer make corrections in blues. When we corrected the interiors of the second printing, we got files in from the typesetter, who didn't have the correction to the contents page because the printer had made it only for their set of the interiors. One more thing to correct on the third printing.
