  • Notes: Per Currey, this is the (A) printing. It can be distinguished from the later (B) printing by a faint vertical line or smudge from the top to the base of the title page, generally running through the r or d of "wizard" to the p or s of "press". This is the library binding (no priority over the trade binding): illustration on front cover and lettering on spine and rear cover are stamped (embossed); rear cover embossed with rectangular box enclosing a note on the binding headed PARNASSUS [publisher's logo] LIBRARY EDITION: inner hinges reinforced with a visible strip of white linen tape pasted under the endpapers. The same dust jacket was used for both trade and library bindings, with "$3.95 llup" in upper right corner of front flap and "Library Edition $3.90" in lower right corner. Generally the trade price is clipped from the jackets on the library binding and the library price is clipped from those on the trade binding.
