Misprint in Great Northern?

My copy of ''Great Northern'' has an interesting misprint in Chapter II, when Roger says "We jolly well won’t (go back) ..... and earned a grim look from Sanus". Of course in the Red Fox edition I checked, it is " .... a grim look from Susan". Susan not Sanus. Mine is a Cape hardback, page 31: the Eighth Impression, January 1956; Type reset 1958; Reprinted 1964. So I suppose the error was made in 1958?

PS: Is Lewis or the Isle of Lewis mentioned by name in GN? The 2013 Red Fox edition has a map of the north of Scotland showing Oban and Mallig, Skye and Lewis.
