Igot "File not downloaded - security risk"

You might want to take a look at that. I'm using Firefox on a Mac.

>8 folio_books: Probably because I don't have an SSL cert on the site anymore (I don't actively maintain it these days, but use it as a file dumping ground). I can put it up on a fileshare site you need, though it should be safe to download. Some browsers are just more picky about the lack of a cert or the filetype. The CSV is the safest format, since it's plain text. Excel could theoretically contain a virus, though I know my copy doesn't.

Hello, I understand that this message is late, but I didn't think I should start a whole new thread. Does anyone know what "not seen" means in the bibliography? I've seen it several times.

For example, for Animal Farm, it lists the first printing, and then has this list of other printings. The second, eighth, ninth, tenth, and sixteenth all say "not seen."

¶ Second impression: 1985 (not seen). ¶ Third impression: 1988, printed and bound by the Bath Press. ¶ Fourth impression: 1989. ¶ Fifth printing: 1991. ¶ Sixth printing: 1992. ¶ Seventh printing: 1994. ¶ Eighth printing: (not seen). ¶ Ninth printing: (not seen). ¶ Tenth printing: (not seen). ¶ Eleventh printing: 1996. ¶ Twelfth printing: 1997. ¶ Thirteenth printing: 1998, with a brown slip case. Spine-lettering redesigned. ¶ Fourteenth printing: 2000. ¶ Fifteenth printing: 2002, with an orange slip case. ¶ Sixteenth printing: 2002 (not seen). ¶ Seventeenth printing: 2012, the dimensions now 227 × 161 × 16 mm and Akzidenz Grotesque

>11 gistak:
It means the bibliographer employed by the FS has not seen a copy and that the FS do not have a copy in their archives

Per a recent Folio Society blog entry, an interview with the FS librarian (https://www.foliosociety.com/usa/blog/this-folio-life-the-folio-library/), they intend to update the bibliography annually.

“In fact, I have started adding the books published this year to the list and we aim to release an updated bibliography annually from this point forward.”
