[But seriously, folks] I'd call it a 12 - maybe a late one, guessing  
here, because of the ink color. I've always considered the end paper  
styles to be one identifying factor, but certainly not an essential  
one, to identifying a style. Rather, I go by spine style, front cover  
logo, board stiffness, and size.
