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?

I would say, left ones printing year, right ones impressions, but I can be wrong.

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?

Typically it is the impression year.

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