Unusual #8?

Hi Rob,

It sounds like the binding is consistant in all ways (front, spine) and the pages are consistant (no topstain, 1963 and later title page).  So, what you are saying is that the oddity is the mismatch between boards and the pages inside?  If so, it looks like a case of newly printed pages placed into existing (older) boards, and the difference could be only months apart.  True?

I'll check my #8's and see how many don't have topstain.
