Guide Question -> Now 90.3 (Four Cont. French Plays) FOR GORDON AND JB

I have a stated first and a later printing.  Both copies have a spring
1967 list at the end of the book.  Both books are 13 with an n jacket.
One other observed difference, unless I am colorblind (and I am, a bit)
is the first is in a blue cover with gold printing on the spine, while
the other is in a much darker blue with silver printing on the spine.
Both copies have $2.45 initial prices on the dj and both books have
Fajita eps.  Although the non first is ever so slightly thicker, the
pages remain white.

So, we have subsequent printings with both Spring and Fall 1967 lists.

I have a copy of this non-FMLE edition.  The catalog is
correct for the first, though.  I guess RH took off the
FMLE statement, but did not change the catalog.

My copy has blank endpapers, and the coarse, low-grade
paper (now yellow and brittle) common to post 1970
printings.  Unfortunately, it is price-clipped, so can't
know for sure (unless someone knows if that crappy paper
was used pre-1970).
