Dark blue textured paper binding, no headband, no dye to top edge and purple/blue coloured dustwrapper.

This edition was printed by two different printers: Clowes & Sons and Unwin Brothers. Minor textual differences indicate that the Clowes copies were printed before those of Unwin Brothers.

Copies in the dark blue cloth binding have also been reported, but it is unknown if these have headbands, dyed top edge, etc, as for the Export Edition.

Not reprinted.
