An eBay posting earlier this evening of Edgar Snow's Red 
Star over China with the earlier "JAPAN CAN'T WIN!" jacket 
suggests that Henry Toledano's Modern Library Price Guide is 
mistaken in its identification of the first ML jacket as 
listing 303 titles.

Henry is correct.  The first ML printing of Red Star over 
China has a jacket listing 303 titles.  Henry has a copy 
with a 303 jacket.  So do I.  

There were at least two printings of the JAPAN CAN'T WIN 
jacket, one listing 303 titles (fall 1944) and one listing 
304 titles (spring 1945).
