That's very helpful ... the first printing then has a spring 1950 list at the end, and it was sold both in fall 1949 and spring 1950 jackets.  Jackets of course were printed separately from the books, and it looks like some jackets were printed before the spring 1950 list had been finalized.

    Jimmy, did you mean the back of your book had the fall 1949 list or the jacket did? My book has the spring 1950 list, but the jacket is fall '49.

      If the list at the end of the book is fall 1949, that means copies with
      spring 1950 lists are second printings with the "First" statement retained.
