Excellent! Congrats Beren! The book is too pricey for my pocketbook!

Not sure why, but A&U indicated the impression number on the spine rather than the front flap. They did this on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th impressions of RK, before they changed the layout to match the FR and TT.

I just saw a copy of this book on Ebay and noticed that the 2nd Impression Return of the King had "Second Impression" printed on the spine of the dust-wrapper.

My first edition copies of the LOTR in dust-wrappers don't have any indication of the Impression on the Spine, so I was interested to see if anybody knows how long this practice went on for and which impressions were involved?
