I recently bought a buckram edition of Auden's selected poetry (#160), or, 
at least, I think so.  It's similar to the other two or three buckrams I 
have, with heavy cloth covers, gold colophons on spine and front, blank 
endpapers and the buckram reinforcements on the inside, but it is sans 
number and the words "buckram reinforced" on the spine. Is this a mistake or 
overrun?  If so, is this a common happening?  Do I assume that this book 
originally had a dust jacket?  It shows no signs of having done time in a 
library.  Thanks for any insight.
