Thanks, Barry and Sharon. Sounds like a printing anomaly then. Matt B.

indulge me: I have a 1930 printing of The Rainbow by D.H. 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?
