Book Confusion

The book on the left is a book I got from the library. The book on the right is one I bought online a while ago. Until I opened 'Dress in Detail' I thought they were different books, but it turns out they're just different editions of the same book, and I have the newer one.

Has this ever happened to you?


  1. I once bought the same book again - also a V&A fashion book. Their underwear book - I pre-bought the hardback before it was published, and then I went to the travelling exhibition when it was in Australia. There I bought what I thought was the exhibition catalogue, except it was the paperback version. I gave it to a good friend.

    1. And they're not cheap books, either. :-(
