British publication usually followed publication in the US by a few months, so the American editions are the true first editions.
Lord of chaos
Minor differences include the British preference for the author name running horizontally across the spine while the title runs down the spine from top to bottom, instead of the title and author being printed from left to right across the spine on the US editions as in the image to the right.
Although, this was not a hard and fast rule, as American editions of The Eye of the World printed the title and author name vertically, while all the subsequent US books printed both horizontally until the eleventh volume, Knife of Dreams, when the vertical orientation was resumed.
Pet peeve: publishers who change the cover design midway through a series!
Although, considering it took 23 years to complete WoT, we're probably lucky the publisher didn't change the design more during that time. This art was replaced by Darrel K.
List Chapter or Page (316):
Sweet's artwork on the dust jackets of later printings. This early UK dust jacket is an interesting variation worth hunting down!
In contrast, the British paperback covers have surely been among the lamest ever! British publishers have a history of publishing "adult" editions of popular fantasy or YA series with plain er covers, for those who don't want to be seen reading supposedly "juvenile" genres. Perhaps it does grow the readership, but I'm not inspired to collect those editions. Special Editions Limited, leather-bound, signed, deluxe editions of each book were published from book 4 The Shadow Rising onwards in the US.
Again, the Encyclopedia WoT has a list of points and records the numbers printed.
Unfortunately, to my knowledge the publisher never went back and issued similar deluxe editions of the first books -- thwarting collectors who might want the complete set.
The British publisher, Orbit, did issue a collector's edition slip-cased of The Eye of the World in , but I cannot yet! Trade-Paper Editions In , Jordan's publisher, Tor, began publishing trade-paperback editions of the whole series with new covers. The artwork was originally created for the ebook release of the series, and each cover is by a different artist. Whether you wish to add this set to your collection really depends on your feelings about the art itself and maybe your shelf-space.
If you have a collection of first-edition or signed hardcovers, keeping a trade paperback set around as reading copies is probably a good idea if, like me, you reread the series regularly! Publishing Errors Publishers occasionally mess up and fail to correct spelling errors before the printing presses roll.
Nine times out of ten the error is minor and left uncorrected, as a new printing would likely make the book unprofitable -- plus they allow readers that feeling of superiority when they discover a typo!
Major errors can call for the entire print run to be pulped — or an errata slip added if the book is non-fiction. If the book had already been shipped to stores before the major error was spotted, these copies would be recalled. When corrected, these errors are classified as different states of the same printing.
The publisher usually fixes the typo, but does not change the edition or printing number on the copyright page, as the new printing simply replaces the defective one.
Typically, the only people who remember the error occurred are rare book dealers and book collectors. Note: over time, the prices of the WoT hardcovers have increased, which has been reflected on the hardcovers. But pricing changes are not nearly as amusing as an unfortunate typo!
Printing Errors Occasionally, a batch of books is printed incorrectly: a signature of pages is omitted, or bound in the wrong order, or cannot be read due to insufficient ink, for example. These errors usual affect only a small number of copies, so no general recall is ordered. Booksellers return the affected books as they notice them and the publishers pulp them.
Dust jackets likewise can be slightly different due to errors or inconsistencies in the printing process. While these can be interesting for collectors, they are not particularly prized unless the book itself is very rare or significant. Young-Adult Editions In , Tor divided the first two books into four volumes and republished them for the thriving young adult market, adding some illustrations from a WoT roleplaying game book issued by Wizards of the Coast which I'll expand on below and new cover art by Charles Keegan.
In one of publishing's many "What If" scenarios, the award-winning artist Charles Vess was originally asked to provide cover and interior art for the first of these YA repackagings.
His illustrations were ultimately deemed a poor fit for the books -- which seems odd, as the cover left is exactly in keeping with Charles Vess' aesthetic -- which might explain why the Wizards of the Coast artwork was re-used.
Ah, what might have been! Books in the young-adult repackaging: From the Two Rivers To the Blight New Threads in the Pattern The most-interesting thing about these YA-editions is the new material Jordan wrote for the first volume. While Egwene is one of the seven main characters, the first few books are generally centered on the three male leads, and the female ones only come into their own as the series progresses.
In fact, from the fourth book onwards the majority of the chapters were written from a female perspective. Reframing the narrative in this way was an interesting idea, and one that really changed the experience of reading the first book.

This was not the best Wheel of Time book so far, but it deserves all the stars simply for turning me into an adoring fan.
Mazrim Taim , the M'hael, orders the Asha'man to raise the dome by two spans. Notes One of the three primary protagonists, Mat Cauthon , is absent from the book, due to injuries sustained at the end of the previous book, A Crown of Swords.
However, Rand is angered that the Salidar Aes Sedai disobeyed his orders in bringing more than the allotted number of sisters, offers them the choice of being treated like the Tower Aes Sedai, kept prisoner by the Asha'man or swearing an oath of fealty to him. Morgase of Caemlyn finds a most unexpected, and quite unwelcome, ally Rand is visibly shaken blaming himself for leaving her in Rahvins clutches. Egwene begins to gather all manner of women who can channel — Sea Folk, Windfinders, Wise Ones, and some surprising others.
