Odd #7 Binding?

After deciding to change my ML sort of Regular from "all sorted by number" to "sorted by binding then number" (#1 - #7; #8-#13; #14), I noticed my 107.3 Portrait of a Lady / Henry James (1939) is taller than the other #7's.  But it is shorter than a #8 (unlike the #7 Lust for Life that is the same size as a #8, correct?).  Anyone else notice this?  Is this type of size variation in #7's well known, somewhat common, etc?

I have placed a scan of this book compared to another #7, and a scan compared to a #8, at www.mlcollect.com under ML Miscellany (then choose Odd #7 binding?).


thanks,
