Paul, quoting Rowena, quoting I forget whom:

Not only does my parents' old Puffin contain no glossary, but my old Mandarin (I
think it was) edition - the one issued uniformly with the first edition of Crown
- also contained no glossary, although it had the text cut :-(

(Last summer I got a 1st edition C&C for L10.50 in Hay on Wye, and gave my
Mandarin copy to the Church fete bookstall)

Not having seen them, I don't know.  But when Mandarin published the four as a
uniform edition, including the original Crown, there was a "Guide to Dalemark"
at the back of Crown only.  (I don't like the Guide anyway.  I tend to take a
"strong reading" (thanks to this list for introducing me to that term) of a lot
of what it says.)

Yes.  (There's certainly an entry for Barangarolob, I can't remember the other
two offhand)
