So my copy of Flieger's Interrupted Music is a 2005 1st (Pb) edition, 1st impression would you say?

I think you're right FreiWild since it is copyright 2005. As the impressions roll on do they ever change the first year-related line though? e.g. if the third impression was 2008 would it actually read:-

09 08 / 5 4 3

or do they just leave the first sequence:-

09 08 07 06 05 / 5 4 3

In other words, is the first sequence specifically the impression year, or just the publication year?

This is a specific question, but could be answered more broadly. I've just bought a book from The Kent State University Press which has a double line number (you know the lines I mean), reading:-

09 08 07 06 05 [small break] 5 4 3 2 1

Anyone any idea, for sure, what this denotes?

Sorry...

There is another copy, claiming "1968" as the publication date --this is obviously in error, but it may still be a 1st impression.

1st edition LORD OF THE RINGS 1968 (1ST 3 Books in one

It's not really in the same condition tho'...

If you're referring to the DJ --then, yes, it's a standard DJ. If you mean the boards themselves --again, yes, standard paper covered boards. However the point is, if you'd seen a Clowes 1st impression with paper covered boards --one would have assumed it had the Ulmo error corrected i.e. it was the 2nd Clowes state (or the "intermediate", between the 1st state & the Clowes Book Club edition --whatever you want to call it). It is not (the 2nd state). It has both errors present. More unconventionally it has a priced jacket, casting doubt on the cast iron assumption that Clowes = "export". It's more complicated than that. Not hugely so, but not so clear cut.
