Well done!

Whenever you get the chance, drop me an email about selling those SILMs you have, that you no longer want...

Indeed, very interesting Stu. This is the kind of nerdy minutiae we can all enjoy...

Ah yes, the old folding & affixing...

Copy #1 has the most common folding & affixing. The map is folded top-to-bottom making a full length fold across (west to east) the map. The map is affixed to the RFEP using the SW corner of the map sheet. The map folds "up" (projected above the book) to open.

I can't quite see, but I think copy #2 has the same folding (maybe Stu is correct & it's folded opposite), it's just that it's been affixed using the NW corner of the map sheet. This is probably just affixed in error.

The maps are sometimes folded differently too; I've seen a few different variations to bring the map inside the book. I haven't noted whether these differences are consistently linked to other variations. Other aspects to note are that the Billing maps are on thicker paper, almost card like. The Billing maps are also not affixed to the rear FEP, but to the final blank page.

You're going to need to give me a clue, what am I supposed to be looking at here?

I don't agree. At the very least it adds value to the value of the slipcase itself. They're not worth nothing. Take a book worth, say, £80-90 (not your example, a "common" book; that's a straw man argument, as you're always going to struggle to add value to ten-a-penny books); add a slipcase & it's going to sell for £100. 'Tis fact! Stu, it happens on eBay, so it must be true...
