Back in June 2003 Fred Williams posted this question"

"I have a Modern Library Dostoyevsky "Crime and Punishment" (Garnett  
is the translator) with a typed insert. It says "Missing page 350 in  
the Modern Library Edition of Crime and Punishment". The typed page  
was folded inside the front cover. Sure enough, Page 350 is blank! It  
looks as if the publisher inserted the typed page after the press  
run. There is no date on the book so I don't know if it's a 1932 or  
1950 edition. Does anyone have any knowledge of this?"

There was just one reply, from Joe Hill:

"Yes,I have a copy,if you wish to date it- DJ #371 $1.45 (rather late)"

So Joe's copy was around 1955. But did this anomaly exist from 1950  
when this edition came out, or was it later for a short time?
