I notice a difference between early 1st dust-jackets spines and later dust-jackets spines.

The text appears to have moved, J.R.R. Tolkien moves down, the book title also moves, "Being the ...." seems to be in the same place and finally George Allen and Unwin also moves down.

Does anyone know at what impression this happened?

You can see an example here, look at the spine of the Fellowship.

*Trotter - just deleted my first post; I was wondering whether you were asking about differences between the volumes or between impressions. Then I read your post again, and found the answer - duh!

I'll take a closer look at my dust-wrappers and get back to you.

Having very few LR 1st editions myself, I feel I'm not really qualified to say, Trotter. I'm sure garm's got plenty of to compare though...
