    I have a first edition of The Cook's Companion by Stephenie Alexander.It is perhaps described as the modern day Australian Equivalent of Mrs.Beeton's Book of Household Management. It is over 800 pages of A4 .There is now an updated edition.I feel uncomfortable about buying a new edition as it seems such a waste as I already have the first edition.Since the first edition was such a runaway success, why can't the publishers issue an update booklet for people like me that already have the first edition? The same could apply to say film guides and other books of film.
  2. What a great idea! that would make a lot more sense. The problem with a lot of updated editions, too are that they are the same thing, with only one or two things changed, and the look of the book is different. Its frustrating.
