Well interestingly enough there is a book with the title "Advanced Quantum Mechanics" by Freeman Dyson

and an interesting piece of art that might come useful if someone were intending to Doctor a dust jacket for one.

why doesn't the Guide mention them? - Oh, it's not very accurate.
Oh? - I'm researching the new edition.

Right here are the links...

The first is a Normal JPG....https://www.dropbox.com/s/pi5rl3xoqu65760/Advanced%20Quantum%20Mechanics.jpg

The Second is the same, but I've extended the edges so that the cover creates flaps....https://www.dropbox.com/s/9izx1ba6ccizt56/Advanced%20Quantum%20Mechanics%20Large.jpg

The Third is the .PSD file, if anyone would like to tweak this a bit feel free as its not 100%, no doubt Kingpin wouldn't mind picking this up  ;)  :P ......https://www.dropbox.com/s/8v7kp8ov2l9jhis/Untitled-2.psd

Hope this helps

I have a copy of "The Time Machine" featured in the 1996 movie. Quite proud of that.

It has been a long time since I updated this thread. I'm sure I can count on you all to help fill in the gaps.

Thanks again for the reference images, Nate. I wonder what that book was originally. It looks like someone put a piece of masking tape across the title (fancy-looking title logo?) to cover it up and then scribbled something onto the tape. Can't quite tell what that bit in the middle of the cover is; it looks like a (possibly) silvery blob of sorts.

I seem to recall Cushing's Doctor reading a comic in one of the sixties dalek films. Does that count? (not exactly a book, as such...) Unfortunately I don't have a screenshot.

Crispin


At the very beginning of the first Dalek film. It was The Eagle, most famous today for Dan Dare.

Then, perhaps, he would also have been interested in this particular edition of "The Time Machine":

Cover2.jpg

I once owned a copy of this particular issue. Sadly, I sold it... along with a large stash of others, "DC" mostly... for five dollars... when I suddenly decided I was too old for comics at the age of sixteen. And, unfortunately, though I had once been dedicated to collecting hardbound copies of Wells' literary works, I never obtained a single-bound version of "The Time Machine". I had to remain satisfied with it as part of my copy of a single volume publication of all his short-stories. Well... at just under a hundred pages, it was considered a short... and, anyway, would have made for a very slim volume compared to most of Wells' other novel works.

Well, I bring this up mainly because it returns to where this thread ( and, honestly, this whole entire genre ) began, namely H.G. Wells. Especially given the fact that it's still the year of his 150th birthday anniversary ( September 21, 1866 )... for just a few more days. A fact which, as far as I've been able to  tell, has gone largely unnoticed by the general public.

Strange... and sad... especially given that Wells had such a knack for prophetic vision. Especially in such eerily-anticipatory short-stories as "The Story of the Last Trump". Anyway... well... trying to avoid a pointless post... so I guess the best is to just get on with it and try to cloud judgment on that issue as much as possible...

So, speaking of comics and the Doctor... and I've searched this thread and found no reference to it... though, perhaps that's because it's just too obvious...

... at the beginning of "The Rings of Akhaten" he is seen reading a copy of "The Beano", Summer Special 1981.

DW_RoA01.jpg

I'd post a full cover-picture, but it's google-found easily.

One more thing?... Since the Doctor is occasionally given to quoting Lewis Carroll ( I think it was during Peter Davison's tenure that he said something along the lines of "Like Alice, I always try to believe six impossible things before breakfast." ) shouldn't a copy of "Alice in Wonderland" be included in this compilation? I have no idea whether or not the book actually appeared physically in the series.

----------------------------

EDIT: Sorry. I'll switch emphasis between the two, then... not entirely eliminating the former, of course, because the operational word, here, is "yet".

Amazing Work Dino - I tried to see if I could get a better image from the Episode to help.
I took 23 screen caps in the space of the three seconds it appears on screen and aligned and stacked the images in Zerene and then aligned and stacked them in photoshop and then made a composite of the two to make this image.

this is the best result I could manage.


It is hard to tell if that copper color is an effect of the light or the color of the label.


How could we have missed this?
