Glad to know about this--I'd never seen this jacket on balloon cloth! The
blue/blue green color scheme was retained after 1940. I have it on a hard
cover copy from spring 1944. I think the earliest copy of the brown version
I've seen is from spring 1946 (309 titles listed inside the jacket) in Joe
Hill's collection. Joe--can you confirm this?
Colors sometimes fade in strange ways from exposure to direct sunlight--they
can practically change from one color to another--but you can usually tell
the original color from the flaps, which are protected from exposure. This
isn't the case here, however.
