Describing book parts correctly by Dave
I have a book that has some dents on what I THINK is called the 'untrimmed fore-edge' of the pages. Is this the proper description for this book part? Is the description of 'dents' complete and clear enough, as there are no tears, just some of the points slightly folded over? Thanks, Dave

The Dharma Bums by
I have read that the first Viking printing of "The Dharma Bums' incorrectly states "First Published in 1950". What printing then is the edition that states "Published in 1958" with no statement of a 2nd or later printing.
