    If I ever become a famous author, my books will include the word ‘Reprint’ in the first print just to screw with people.

    Also known as the second printing of the first edition. Which also means it still has the mistakes that were fixed in the second edition.

    Oldest book I’ve found in the regular stacks: A 1786 or so printing of the play The Mysterious Mother by Horace Walpole. It wasn’t even in special collections or anything! I’m a Walpole fan so I photocopied that sucker before I turned it in. Iication. shouldn’t have bothered: It’s a turkey that wasn’t really meant for performance.
