Hardback Covers


This page contains pictures of the book covers for the first 5 hardcover formats; as well as the 2003 re-issues. The oval and square (paperback) cover formats are on a separate page. This is virtually a "picture only" page and may take some time to load. (The "dust jacket" pictures are first of the actual covers, with the jackets below.)
