I have a Wuthering Heights with the Maculay Intro and the 390 page 
version that dates in the back of the book to Spring, 1950.  (James, 
Washington Square but not Alcott, Little Women.)  The DJ for this 
book dates to fall, '48 (Dickenson but not Austen).  I'm guessing 
that the late date for this book indicates that the answer to your 
question is probably "no".

John Peterson

John is wise, I think, in his use of the terms "guessing" and "probably."

I believe that any strong negative conclusion is unwarranted for two reasons.
(1) In general, it's almost impossible to prove a negative. With the 
occasional exception, you can't really prove that something DID NOT 
happen (in all fields from quantum physics to basket weaving); you 
can only prove that something DID happen.
(2) The Modern Library is infamous, as we all know, for anomalies in 
nearly every phase of its publishing habits.
