An oddity

Yesterday I purchased at a bookstore a copy of a Boni-Liveright Modern
Library without a trace of any printing on the brown leatherette cover
and spine.  It is George Bernard Shaw's "An Unsocial Socialist."  My
earlier purchased copy has a black leatherette cover with the marbelized
endpapers. This unmarked one has the Brodzky endpapers.  They both have
"second printing Sept 1917"  at the bottom of the first page.

Has anyone else ever seen anything like this, a "stealth modern library
book?"

I'll put it up on ebay if you think there would be enough interest in
such an oddity.
