Joseph, the base book is available in hard cover here
(I recommend changing the seller to sci-fi city as they have it on sale for 35 and when I got it it was the revised edition)

Does the book include all the original spells as well, potentially with any errata, or is it all new stuff?

Is this the only way to obtain a physical copy of the book?

Also looking for alternate ways for a physical copy. Did you wind up getting from Drivethru?

Accursed Land doesn't seem to have a duration listed, and I can assume it isn't meant to be permanent due to the spell making reference to its duration.

Outside that, there's a couple of master classes which seem like they just wouldn't work with some ancestries (Soulbound w/ any Immortals? I think they get literally zero benefit from it, which is fine, but nothing calls out if they can't take it - and would Clockworks get the benefit, since they DO have a mortal soul? Incarnations probably can't or shouldn't take it either.) It also feels like Void Thrall should give corruption, but it currently doesn't, is that intended? I can see the extra power being intended.

That said, I love basically all the content here. Fantastic stuff.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
