This is clipped from the front panel of a Boni & Liveright
jacket, 1921-25.  

Curiously, it omits the first two sentences of the jacket
description: "THIS is the first selection from the famous
Diary of Samuel Pepys to appear at a cost which enables the
average reader to sit down and enjoy the inspired chatter of
the Diary. And what a remarkable editorial job Richard Le
Gallienne, long a student of the Diary, has done!" 

The same description was used on the front panel of early ML,
Inc., jackets, but as far as I know those weren't on blue paper.
