Collectors notes

​The first three printings had the purple band (directors covers), the 4th through 9th have the yellow 007 band.

From the 7th printing onwards the books become part of the Pan X series so the designation on the spine changes from G455 to X238 and the “Great Pan” is removed from the cover. A few 7th printings have been found with the earlier cover priced at 2’6 but most are X series.

The 9th printing when compared with other printings seems to have a green tinge.
