Note on Impression Numbers

From late 2014 a small number of review copies ("Impression 0") were issued with a temporary cover.

Impression 1 was issued at the Manchester launch in February 2015.

Impression 2 was issued at the London launch in March 2015. It contained a number of corrections, and those who had bought Impression 1 were offered a free replacement. The table above therefore takes Impression 2 as its starting point.

Impression 3 was launched in summer 2015.

Impression 4 is currently being supplied (as from May 2017)..
