Henry's Guide indicates that a 1st of Atherton has binding #1.
I have a copy in binding 2, and the jacket indicates 85c, blacked
out with a stamp below that probably is 95c. So that doesn't
answer your question.

It is certainly possible that the 75c price was only in the
advertisement, and never printed on the books.
