Ok, so I know there are three printings of the whole set, the first two printings had faux leather covers, and the last one was the normal paper. They were released in 1995, 1997, and 1999, respectively. So, umm, the question then comes on how to tell the 1st printing from the 2nd....

The other volumes in the series can be easily distinguished because, on their spines, they state "2nd edition" on them. It does not seem that the 1st print of V4 does... or does it? If it does, then it is the 1st printing. Is there anything else, visibly different?

States 1st or 2nd on interior page..don't think anything on the outside is different but I could be wrong (though know from the 2nd Ed printings forum this was mentioned about the interior page).

((edit: checked and I have a 1st print of this, but have nothing to compare it to for any difference, though it does state printing on interior credits page))


I reject your reality and substitute my own
