I would think that in most cases, the higher priced items are later, but for UK books, on at least one edition of The Lord of the Rings, http://www.tolkienbooks.net/php/details.php?reference=45450, the price was cheaper for a later edition, so does not always hold true.

I think there is a lot to be said for traditional book-binding looks, and not for experimental bindings, some work and a lot don't.

I have to say that the estimate for this lot is bonkers, £8000-£10000 for a dodgy rebind.

My 1st Impression has no printed price in it, or any labels, and it is not price clipped.

It seems surprising that it has no price at all, I think it should have had a printed price or a price label?
