Hi a ll
Am after some information/words of wisdom.

I have a second impression of the FOTR and the dustwrapper clearly states 'Second Impression' as expected.

When I have looked at buying a first impression (well dreamed of it) there looks to be two variants of the jacket. Both look exactly the same in appearance but one is fractionally narrower in height?
Neither state any impression and so I assume both were attached to the first impression.

Can anyone cast any light on this?
Thanks

Hello Laurel,

I've run across a couple of dustjackets for the 1st impression that were about 1/4" shorter in height. One had been trimmed by a library to put in one of the old style dustjacket protectors. The other one was a 2nd or 3rd impression copy that had the "?nd/rd Impression" scraped off, leaving a thin area that you could really only see when held up to the light. Hopefully that is not what you are looking at. Other than those I have never heard of one being an odd or smaller size.
