Madame Bovery
(Verso page from1927 edition)
New Modern Library edition 1927
Madame Bovary  was first published by The Modern Library in 1918 . In
the ensuing nine years,over 100,000 copies of the book were
printed,after which the original plates were destroyed. The first
edition of the new plates were printed in May 1927
BUT,as we know the first edition came out in 1917,not 1918...right?
Or,had we gone over this before  and I missed it.
