BC, do they have Dewey Decimal numbers on the spines? Has anyone had any
success removing DD#'s from buckrams?
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).
