It's OK (though not documented (well enough), unfortunately). You are specialized in Wizardry School and the book is from the Druidic School. However, most (all?) of the spells can be found in other books as well.

Fixed in SVN.

Then I hit 'r' to recall, and it offers me a list of the objects:
a} a Black ogre Corpse
b} a Jade Ring of Resist Cold

If I choose A:
Target Selected.
If I choose B it moves to another object further on.

You mentioned that we can't examine from afar, but normally, I can use the above method to call up a description for any object on my screen (except for one in a pile, apparently). For this one, my character was standing adjacent to the pile.
Oh, you are right, indeed. However, I want to steal the targetting code from V, and in V you can't examine from afar even single objects (just verified). If you feel this is important, please file a Feature Request for V and if takkaria agrees, I can code that in V (I have the V SVN account already). Then when we steal the V code, it'll be as you desire.

Will do!

A few more -

On the self-knowledge screen, it said that my character was afflicted with paranoia caused by minor ailments. I tried a Mushroom of Cure Paranoia and it didn't cure the disease. Maybe those aren't supposed to cure the disease type of paranoia. If so, then it's a bit confusing - maybe the disease type could be renamed to differentiate it?

Scrying spells such as Sense Magic seem a little untidy in that they will list as choices some items that have already been identified, or mushroom patch spores (which don't get identified).

Description for Path through Misty Mountains - missing a letter and a couple spaces - should be:
The High Pass over Misty Mountains is said to be the easiest road east to Mirkwood and further towards Smaug's lair. Easiest does not mean easy. It is too steep and too high to be even attempted when fresh snow falls and in other times goblins set traps for adventurers entering the wild. After a long walk up the pass, you are exhausted, but fortunately, you find an entrance '>' to a cave...

Another very minor one -

Upon entering the bottom level of the Woodsman Village dungeon, a list of 11 things "disappears from view" came onscreen, as if the game had generated the objects and dropped them into the grass as my character appeared on the stairs. Not sure whether that was supposed to be visible or not - that's the first time I've seen something like that. There had been no combat yet, no traps that went off, nothing.

Probably they plopped into water or hid in a grass. A clumsy thing, anyway --- the objects are all generated in mid-air before the first turn and you just caught them falling on the ground the first turn...
