Not the answer to your question,yet of note;all of the books in the Everyman's series without a date ARE the first edition

MLers (and especially book dealers),
One of the most common mistakes I see sellers make is typified in the
"Published by The Modern Library, there is no copyright nor print
date. It appears to be a first edition.
Was it common in the early and mid 20th century for most first
editions (not of ML's of course) to have no date and no copyright? If
not, can anybody tell me the source of this common error?
