Dogeared nearing milestone

Sun Dec 19 17:24:30 EST 2004

There are three variants of the yellow LONG VOYAGE HOME 
jacket with the Georges Schreiber painting: (1) fall 1940 
listing two plays and with statement about the John Ford 
motion picture, as shown in Dogeared; (2) spring 1944, 
listing two plays only with "etc." and statement about the 
John Ford motion picture omitted; (3) spring 1945 listing 
all seven plays.  I have the first and third; I'll scan a 
copy of (3) when I fight myself clear of the stack of term 
papers and final exams I'm currently buried under.  

I don't have (2); I assume the intention here was to add the 
titles of all seven plays, but somehow the additions weren't 
made and the jacket was printed without them.  I have a b&w 
photocopy of (2) which I made--I think--from a copy in the 
Random House corporate library.  If anyone has a copy of 
this it would be a nice addition to Dogeared.
