In our two copies, the impression of the signature on the plate is very shallow, but can be detected by touch, if a finger is sensitive enough, or by looking at the back of the plate with a raking (sideways) light. In letterpress printing, in which inked letters and images are pressed into the paper, the depth of impression will vary according to the preference of the printer -- some like a deep indentation, others only what is called a 'kiss', and everywhere in between -- and the depth may vary slightly also through the course of the print run as a result of wear of the printing materials or mechanical variations in the press.

People who use the internet are about to get a new opportunity to complain about company websites. From 1 March, consumers are being invited to make official objections about indecent or misleading information on the internet. They will be able to complain to the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA), which is taking on new powers to regulate commercial websites. Up to now the ASA has only been able to monitor traditional advertising. These were generally on billboards, in newspapers or on television.

I wonder if you could complain about fake items or collections of e-books, being sold through auction sites?

i had a look at my copy and the signature is the rare, un-indented copy, like garms.

I also had not noticed the original price on the book until now, 50 shillings in 1962, this was a very expensive book when it came out.
