Trotter -

My 7th Impression from 1957 shows the line of dots.

The difference may be due to different binding sizes. Most impressions of FR are Medium 8vo size (with pages about 14cm wide), while a few impressions were cut to the slightly smaller Demi 8vo size (with pages about 13.5cm wide).

Was it you that contacted me a while ago about the lettering on the spine of the binding of 4th Impression copies of FR? I have found some additional information on this in the A&U archive. The books were bound in 2 or 3 batches - Purnells (the printers/binders) mistakenly blocked the first batch in silver rather than gold foil and used the wrongly style of lettering. A&U complained when they were charged for the wrong type of blocking foil. Presumably Purnells then checked the example of the binding that they had been supplied with and rectified the error for later copies.

The 1992 and 1993 diaries have artwork by JRRT and are vitually identical.

The 1993 lacks any days so can be used for any year.

The 1994 diary is by Alan Lee.

The 1995 diary is by John Howe but with different pictures to the calendar.

The 1997 diary is just a re-packaging of the 1993 dayless diary with a different cover.

The 1999 diary is by Alan Lee. From here on HarperCollins started using the same artwork for both diary and calendar.

If you do decide to do a site if might be worthwhile to add in the address books and birthday books that HC have issued.

There are none listed in any of the pre-1992 A&U/Unwin Hyman/HarperCollins catalogues. I have diaries from 1992-1995, 1997 and 1999-Present.

There is a good colour reproduction of one of the signed maps on the back cover of Profiles in History Autoraph Catalog 39
