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?

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

Thanks for the information.

Do any of you know some retailers from Australia/New Zealand and have bought already from them?

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?

And here is the quick response from HarperCollins:

"As far as I am aware all the copies marked 1 went to Australia/New Zealand - we did an early print run in the summer to ensure it could be shipped there for them to publish simultaneously. I asked for the UK run to be marked 1 as well, but was overruled by the stock controllers!"


So get your overseas orders in place if you really want that "1".
