It must be an error on Henry's part; in any case, 371 titles 
would be fall 1954, not 1955.  The Best Plays of Chekhov was 
published in fall 1956.  The $1.45 price and fall 1956 list 
(includes Huxley, Brave New World but not Caesar, Gallic 
War; 377 titles in dj) are correct for the first printing.  
Henry's copy of the first printing matches the eBay 
description.
