Thanks for this info, Barry.   I'll make the necessary adjustments to 
the various Dogeared pages (FAQs, Missing DJs page, etc.),

Do we assume from this that if the DJ has the paragraph symbol it must 
be a first printing DJ? Or did second printings of 1st catalog books 
(that is, May 1917 editions perhaps reprinted in July) have the 
paragraph symbol as well? (I'll bet it's not too likely that titles 
were reprinted so quickly, though.)
