Barry and Matt,

   I have a #5 binding and a 185-title dust jacket .  My DJ is also a
trifle short, maybe 1/16 of an inch.

Lawrence (binding No. 5, the grapevine spine) with 175 titles mentioned on the back panel. The book is just a fraction of an inch taller than other balloon cloth volumes (no more than 1/8"), but the dust jacket is regular size; in other words, it looks like someone "short-sheeted" the book. Did the publisher put short jackets on some books or am I the victim of a switched jacket?
