Scored a handful of buckram regulars this week, including the unsighted 72.3, Hardy's T of the D in gray. All four are the "type 1" spine w/ blackened box and "Buckram Reinforced" at the tail. All are ex-library copies from the same highschool, and I thought it was interesting to find "Random, 4/67, $2.39" written in the gutter of all the title pages, as librarians do. So, I guess they cost $2.39 from Random House in April 1967. I've never seen a price attributed to buckrams. The three with catalogs dated to '64-'66. The other titles, were Dostoyevsky's Brothers K (red) and Maugham's Moon and Sixpence (Burgundy) and Human Suffering (Dark Green).
