Very cool! I didn't know there was a Billing second impression! I thought Billings was considered the "second impression" after the Export then went back again to Clowes and Sons for the Domestic 2nd. Sadly no, Tolkienbooks.net has plenty of great info but none of the textual inconsistencies! I thought to myself, "well I can't expect them to do all the work for me can I?" ... 6 hours of googling later I was posting on here as well as purchasing The Descriptive Bibliography by Hammond

You want to be using the word "state", not "impression". Both Clowes and Billings have multiple states of the first impression, but these states are all first impressions. There are, of course, also later impressions.

Gotcha, good to know! Multiple impressions, with multiple states
