I see the "old" pic has returned to the top of the main FSD page. Is that the end of the quizzes, Warwick, or are you just taking a (well-deserved) break?

toukokuu 9, 2020, 8:23 am

I was waiting to see if anyone missed them, and if there was any demand for their return.
Are others interested?

Muokkaaja: heinäkuu 11, 2020, 10:19 am

heinäkuu 11, 2020, 6:17 pm

It would be a good idea to follow the suggestion of >79 ubiquitousuk: which is explained in >81 ubiquitousuk:

heinäkuu 12, 2020, 6:15 am

--all of your guesses in plain unhidden text.

heinäkuu 12, 2020, 1:55 pm

D2 Mass Observation Britain in WW2, D4 English Journey, Priestley

Muokkaaja: heinäkuu 12, 2020, 4:01 pm

I only own seven of these twenty but how are we to possibly guess which Shakespeare Comedy?

heinäkuu 12, 2020, 3:08 pm

Damn, I've only seen four of them.
The rest I didn't even know existed.

heinäkuu 13, 2020, 1:25 am

D4: English Journey

heinäkuu 13, 2020, 8:34 am

>89 treereader:

I'm seeing the same behavior on my iPad, as well. I thought these spoiler tags were supposed to hide all of your guesses until clicked upon. Perhaps I am misunderstanding the function?

Muokkaaja: heinäkuu 13, 2020, 11:53 am

One problem with the hidden (spoiler) approach is we don't have a cumulative answer list so I've started one here:

A: Chartres; Wind, Sand, and Stars; Chateaubriand's Memoirs from Beyond the Tomb; In Xanadu; St Peter's Umbrella
B: The Quest for Corvo; Under Milkwood; The Shooting Party; British Myths & Legends; How to See Fairies
C: A General History of the Robberies & Murders of the Most Notorious Pirates; Rosetta Stone; A High Wind in Jamaica; Letterpress Shakespeare Comedy; English Eccentrics
D: William Allingham: The Diaries; Mass Observation Britain in WW2; As I Walked Out one Midsummer Morning; English Journey; Charing Cross Road

It looks like everything is solved

heinäkuu 13, 2020, 5:22 pm

Well done everyone.
I’ll try to remember to do another one in the middle of August.

heinäkuu 13, 2020, 7:27 pm

>99 wcarter: Warwick, just for the record, which Shakespeare Comedy did you choose?

heinäkuu 13, 2020, 8:25 pm

Got 12 this time:

??? | Wind, Sand and Stars | Memoirs from beyond the Tomb | In Xanadu | St Peter's Umbrella
??? | Under Milk Wood | The Shooting Party | British Myths & Legends | How to See Fairies
Notorious Pyrates | The Rosetta Stone | something familiar | one of LS comedies | ???

>118 emgcat: "I cannot add any more titles to those listed above."

That's because there aren't any more! :-D

I tried to do this purely from memory, without looking at any of my books. I managed 9, which is pretty appalling given I own 13 of them! I always get confused which "war" book bindings are which, as many of them are similar!

syyskuu 12, 2020, 9:25 am

I've been going through the back catalogs on the wiki lately, looking to see if there were any books I'd like to add to my collection. Definitely helps with the quiz.

Like B1, A5 is also The leopard - in this case the 1988 edition. A sly move by Dr Carter

Well spotted. A case of a leopard changing its "spots", or at least its case.

>169 Jobasha:
Until the end of 2020, anyone could change the image at the head of any group page, which in some groups, caused problems (and has with FSD in the past).
With the introduction of LT2, only the group administrator can change the picture. As the FSD administrator has been missing for many years, we are now awaiting the appointment of a new administrator(s). Once this is done, the picture can be changed again.

The marbled paper and the color of the spine are a match, but those lines make me wonder if my assumption is incorrect.

>303 bacchus.:
B2 I think, based on Warwick's list of book series entries (and the corresponding picture from Warwick's library), that the cover is for Knossos, not Troy. Although the picture is quite small, it looks like the palace.
For A4 I could just about read Hanover Square on the label, and it looked a bit like an concert advertising bill. I remembered reading that Haydn premiered many of the London symphonies at the Hanover Square Rooms. That sent me looking for anything that might be about that.

Your reliable sources are not entirely wrong :) I've been collecting Folios (and only Folios) for over 40 years and in that time (even more so since I retired) I have gathered a large collection. It is not complete but it's more or less as complete as I want it. I'm not interested in Marvel comic books or some other ventures of the last fifteen years or so. What I can't do is name a cover from Warwick's quizzes simply by recall. I recognise many of them but to attach a name I'd have to search through a lot of books, spread over two houses (space in the second donated kindly by a cousin) and by the time I did that next month's competition will have started! So I'm just pleased the title came to me quickly and I could participate, for once.
