War of the covers...um...worlds

A certain Dr. Zeus has painstakingly collected images of all (or at least very many of) the book covers of War of the Worlds and put them online here. The book has been in print for over 100 years (since 1898), and there are at 378 covers in this online collection. Brilliant browsing time, whether you're a bibliographical afficionado and get all misty-eyed at the eras they represent, or whether you just think they're cool (or both).

Some of the worst (I mean...best?):
What does Tintin have to do with War of the Worlds?

Or this Tin Can Alien?

Or, um, the USS Enterprise?
