Hi, the compact editions were released 16/11/95 ltd to 20,000 copies they were The colour of magic, the light fantastic equal rites and mort, they came as individual copies or you could get the 4 in a slip case, each book measured about 10cm square. Mort the comic illustrated by Graham higgins was producerd in two versions Hbk 1,750 copies 1st edition, pbk 33,500 copies 1st edition. produced 8/9/94. And once more with footnotes was produced 04/09/04 ltd to 2500 copies produced by NESFA press. I hope this helps and if you look on ebay you'll find all these books from time to time.

The compact books were where I first discovered TP, I bought the 4 from a local charity shop, thought they were different, started reading Equal Rites & the rest is history. :lol: :lol:
Best wishes,

I sold it and it was painful to part with. :( But, we need a new roof and I got a decent price for it. :) It's a great collection of his short stories.

I've never seen a slate roof over here! Best you get on shingles is about 30 years. We could probably get slate if we won the lottery. :shock: It would look beautiful with the cedar shake shingles though! :D I passed on the suggestion to hubby, but I don't know how to spell the noise he made.
