2nd state DJ on every ML title?

Even Racine's Complete Plays, Vol's I & II?  Styron's Nat Turner was
issued in 1970.  Is the assertion that the 1990's Styron reissue
constitutes a second state DJ?  The Guide shows only FMLE's of these
titles.  Any evidence of this?

While Googling this morning, I found an article abiut the Modern 
Library  written by ListServ apostate member Sam Gottlieb.


One of the things he asserts in the article is the following: "I 
believe every single book in the series (with the possible exceptions 
of Illustrated ML titles and paperbacks) has both a first and 
subsequent state(s) dust jacket."

He  also asserts that ML's edition of The African Queen by C. S. 
Forester may be a true American first because it restores missing 
chapters. (I remember asking about this on this ListServ some time 
ago, but nobody knew anything about it.)

Comments on any of this?
