Color Variation in Paperbacks?

Hi Folks,

(I seem to remember writing about the general topic of color  
variation in paperbacks before but can't recall getting any response.  
That one was on P-2, 7 Famous Greek Plays.)

This morning Ron Holl sent me an image of P28, O'Neill's "The Iceman  
Cometh" (one of my favorite plays, by the way) with red as the  
primary color. The one on Dogeared - from my own library - is  
chartreuse. Now, chartreuse is one of the colors that red fades to  
when sunned; but my copy is evenly chartreuse on all surfaces which  
would be unusual in fading.

The paperback  dating key is silent on the subject of color. Any  
comments on this topic?
