There's the 1976 ed listed above, and GGBP did it in 2003 & 2004 - no idea if there were any differences though. Mary Cadogan was still alive when the GGBP ones were published, so she may have made some changes/corrections. I don't know if anyone on here has both to compare...? I thought I had the 76 edition, but I've just looked along my shelves and can't see it.

to be nobody but yourself - in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else - means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.
