UK eds. (22nd September) are not true firsts as they were preceeded by the US frim, Scribner's ed. (3rd March 1999). The earliest version of ''Tis' in print is the 'New Yorker' serialised version which Terence Smith had read evidently read before his PBS interview with McCourt on 17th March.
Help dating the Easton Press limited edition in leather of the same year would be appreciated.
