Re the Tarboard Typo Tracker, I have added a couple of comments from my copies, which are largely Cape hardbacks ex the Wellington Public Library Junior Dept in New Zealand. While I thought that the Cape hardbacks would have the same page numbering from impression to impression (perhaps varying by one or two pages), a couple seem to differ considerably from the other entry;

PM Chapter 6: I have Dot saying ".. any amount of cake for pudding" (not "for a pudding" i.e. no "A" on pg 55 (S/S has pg 64) [my Cape hb; 12th impression; 1964]

GN chapter 19 I have Nancy says " … crosstrees, he can see our topmast from his deck" pg 235 (mine says topmast not topmost; S/S has pg 240) [my Cape hb reprinted 1964, was type reset 1958)

My Coot Club wass published in Australia 1949, Australasian Publishing Co Pty Ltd, Sydney in association with Jonathan Cape London. Bound by Holland and Stephenson Pty Ltd, Sydney but Printed in Great Britain by J and J Gray Edinburgh. So it was printed in Scotland and the pages were then bundled up and sent to Sydney! Though some of the Capes were sent to another city in England to be bound (eg PM, 12th Imp 1964; printed by Alden Press Oxford and bound by A W Bain, London).

I have added for Swallowdale the List of Illustrations which says
“IN PETER DUCAVECK’S rather than "IN PETER DUCK’S CAVE” [28TH Impression, 1968).
