I don't know where the 1952 date comes from. I've seen it
in the Bantam
paperback and also Bruccoli's O'Hara bibliography. It
probably comes from
the ML Paperback edition of Butterfield 8--but that was 1957
Maybe somebody along the line misread the 7 for a 2.
Fall 1961 is correct date for the regular ML.
