Given this information, I believe I have a copy of the
September 1939 printing. The DJ has 268 titles. The
book is a binding 7. Nasty photo of Mr. Hearst on
the DJ cover!
So I guess that settles the question about the binding
8 (hardcover) Lundberg. But I swear I saw a copy
listed on bibliofind that was described as a green
hardcover with black and gold on the cover (no DJ).
No photo of course, and it is not listed anymore.
Also, there is no statement of the book being a 1st,
the title page verso says 'Copyright 1936 Ferdinand
Thanks for the information!
