Hi,

I recently received a copy of the 1st print Authentic Thaumaturgy (the one before chaosium reprint) and was surprised that there is twice pages 35 and 36. Is it a rare misprint or is this misprint present in all 1st print?

Thanks!
Géraud

Is the "1st print" the chapbook with a manilla-colored cover?  My copy has the pages numbered in order and does not have pages 35 and 36 twice.

What does it look like?  What I thought was a pre-chaosium print turned out to be a chaosium 1st print.

If you look on the copyright page, in the credits section, the publisher of this book is Chaosium.  I recently found this out on the thread in the Appraisals thread.

Neither of my 2nd prints have duplicated pages.

Thanks Mark, I didn't spot this! There is The CHAOSium in the credits.

So, it is a uncommon misprint. I will be interested to know if there is other copies like this one.

Yep, that's what I have.  I didn't notice the publisher credit for CHAOSium before.   :oops:
