I suspect that you're right. The transitional bindings were only used  
for three months (January-March 1929), and there were just six 1st  
printings in transitional. (See Barry Neavill's one-message thread  
"Transitional binding" in June 2002).

I'd hope that there were at least a few dozen to make it an  
interesting collecting area.

What do others think?
