A few months later most of the stock was destroyed by German bombs.fewer than 100 sets of sheets of the book had been salvaged. These I offered to the Bibliographical Society for sale to its members, and they were soon taken up, while Cape's volume became much sought after.This volume is therefore the second issue of the first edition'.
