I picked this up recently and the colophon page has what appears to be a typewritten designation of "Presentation Copy." I only have two other Presentation Copies, and both have the designation hand-written in ALL CAPS in red fine-lined marker - just like the pen used for the numbering. I say this appears to be typewritten because the font is different from that used for the colophon and, when I flip the page, the letterpress indent from the colophon is more pronounced than that from the Presentation Copy designation. I don't doubt that this book and signature is genuine and I don't see how anyone could forge "Presentation Copy" on a typewriter without dismantling the book and putting it back together. So, does anyone else have a Presentation Copy from this era (1983) that is typewritten?
