There are 2 Caveney book publications about Alexander: one has a red cover with a question mark, and the other has a black cover with Alexander and a crystal ball. Can anyone tell me the difference between these two volumes? Thanks.

Tim, do you have any knowledge as to what is included in the expanded edition, and whether it would be worth paying extra for? Does it add anything crucial? Is it mostly text or pictures or both? Thanks for your response.

I've only read the second edition so I can't speak firsthand about the changes, but a major revision so soon after initial publication is seldom done lightly, since it alienates those who bought the first one. Pagecount was boosted by almost 25%, and the introduction to the second edition claims that a lot of substance was added. You can read that intro on this page:

If I had neither, I would definitely be seeking out the second edition.

Thanks Tim, much appreciated! (BTW, let me know if you'd like to sell your copy, and how much.)

Thanks, but I enjoy my magic history library. It's staying on my shelf!
