Notes on this edition: A small number of copies of the first U.K. edition of Julian Barnes’s The Noise of Time were distributed with a printing error on the dust jacket. The red lettering is missing for the author’s name on the front and spine and the blurbs to the back of the jacket. The letters impressed upon the jacket, which created an embossed effect (as shown in the photos), but the ink failed to apply.
In addition to the copy featured here, the author was made aware of two additional copies with this error. The exact number of copies with this printing error is unknown.
Notes on this edition: The first English language edition of Julian Barnes’s The Noise of Time was preceded in publication by the Dutch and Georgian translations. A very small quantity of dust jackets for the first edition were published with a printing error in which the red lettering was not applied (see example).

The first Canadian edition of Julian Barnes’s Keeping an Eye Open appears nearly identical to the first American edition, except changes to the publisher information on the title page, copyright page, and jacket that identify this edition as a Random House Canada publication.
Pages are cream, not white, as evidenced by the contrast between page color and the publisher’s device on the title page.
