Our UK manufactured range is made from 100% LDPE using up to 30% more material than our competitors which ensure these bottles have a bright shiny appearance and a soft pliable feel. LDPE falls within the 7% of plastics that the UK currently recycle. All our products meet EU food and drink standards. No BPA (bisphenol-A) is used in the manufacturing process, or contained in the product.

The range of protein shakers are made from 100% PP. This gives a more solid product ideal for use in any environment and is perfect for a whole range of suppliments.

The CamelBak bottle range. A rugged leak-proof design with ergonomic high flow spout and easy to open half turn cap which is safely secured on a durable tether. The two finger carry handle allows easy transportation whilst also doubling as a cap stow for one handed drinking. The wide-mouth opening is easy to fill with ice and liquid. BPA free. Complete with a lifetime guarantee.

Just did a short piece for the Texas Observer on one of my favorite Houston books, the long-out-of-print Sig Byrd’s Houston , which in my humble opinion stands tall in the company of the best of mid-century newspaper columnizing anywhere in the country.

The persons, places, and incidents in this book are real persons, places and incidents,” Byrd wrote in the book’s not-quite-boilerplate front matter. “Any resemblance between this book and a work of fiction is either coincidental or, what is more likely, is entirely in the reader’s imagination. He probably has been reading too many novels and has neglected to cultivate the acquaintance of his neighbors.”

I probably paid too much for this first edition of A Moveable Feast, everybody’s favorite college book , but I really wanted it.

The desire to acquire first editions could be considered the backbone of the book collecting world. First edition books are the first appearances in print of a particular work, and as such convey value and meaning to their owner, aesthetically, emotionally and monetarily. To find out more about what a first edition book is and why it's important to collectors, see what is a first edition?

You can search for first edition books easily on Biblio by either checking the box that indicates first edition in most search forms or looking for the the links on the left after you have searched for a book that allow you to narrow your search by first edition. Generally, we also recommend that you sort your search by price descending when searching for first editions, as this reduces the amount of "noise" generated by first printings of later editions (see first, thus in our glossary).

A word of caution : because computers are only so smart, they sometimes make mistakes. Biblio's search system is looking at millions of pieces of information from thousands of booksellers who each have their own way of saying things, so sometimes our search might inadvertently yield a false positive when searching for first editions. Therefore, we strongly encourage collectors to fully read the booksellers' descriptions before making a purchase on Biblio or any other site .

While scrolling through the internet in search of new and/or interesting Hodgson tidbits, I stumbled across this picture today:

Now, what makes this picture curious is two things: these are supposedly the copies of WHH volumes owned by author Dennis Wheatley (who did some writing about Hodgson himself) AND these are reported to be first editions.  Now, I have never seen a Hodgson first edition myself.  But what I find curious is the fact that the spines of these books all read “The Works of William Hope Hodgson” with volumes one to nine.  That would include the four novels, CARNACKI, LUCK OF THE STRONG, MEN OF THE DEEP WATERS, CAPTAIN GAULT and possibly a volume of poetry.

What I don’t understand is the label of “The Works of William Hope Hodgson”.  So far as I am aware, the first editions were not labeled as such and the only other set to bear any name like that is the Night Shade editions of recent years.  SO, where did this come from?  Were these possibly first editions that were rebound with the different spines?  Anyone have any light to shed on this bibliographic curiosity?
