He will also have some copies of the commemorative 1966 first edition, which summarizes some highlights of the history of Melway and Melbourne from Melways 1966 beginning. It is encased in a premium display case and includes an exact reprint of the first edition. Copies of this edition will be available at $100, a reduction from the usual price of $149.
