Does it have the synthetic cover rather than leatherette or balloon cloth?
Were all the gift sets bound in the art deco design Keretol (sp), I wonder?

I have an unusual combination of a copy of The Romance Of Leonardo Da Vinci.

It has a dust jacket like the gift set of 1928 but a different color (a
brownish orange)

It is a balloon cloth style #6 binding with Bernhard endpapers. It
states 159 books on the back of the dj. At the back of the book it
 lists 10 of the 20 books published in 1929, and omits the other 10.
 There is an inscription on the front endpaper dated April 15 1929
