A question for all those collectors of firsts.
Many collectors want the first issue dj. i.e. the lowest number on a dj for a 
particular title.
 Is this the correct approach. Bare in mind that the publisher was in the 
habit of switching djs. 
Question: If you see ten copies for a first (on copyright page) with a 
particular dj # and one or two with a lower number, are these lower numbers 
freaks, i.e. curios and not the genuine first dj. Take Boswell's Johnson, for 
instance, (Regular ML): the last five or six first editions (on copyright 
page), I have seen,  have had #362. The Guide states #360. Is the #360 a 
curiosity.....In order to allow for this I have not been too rigid in the 
guide for first dj numbers, allowing  a margin of error of two or three 
numbers. Any opinions out there?
