I've ordered the Writer's voices CD, their are some very interesting authors on it plus they also have a US authors CD as well, well worth a look at the website. Thanks for the tip Wellinghall.

Thanks for that.

It always amazes me that GA&U spent so much effort on documenting the impression of a book (and getting it wrong a lot of times), yet Houghton Mifflin seemed to have no interest at all.

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?

Very interesting interview with John Howe both from his own web site and the LOTRplaza.com.

If you are interested in the Reverend Dodgeson (sic) book as Lewis Caroll and have never seen the original hand written and drawn version of Alice's Adventures Under Ground, then have a look at the Turning The Pages project by the British Library, if you have the right software installed you can zoom in and see every page in the book.

Windows XP or Vista version with .Net installed
