Mine is a 67.2 with the ed. note page 788 and the following pages with Pounds poems.? The dj is a G5 and closer to Ge but the Torchbearer is in a box as opposed to being spread out across the spine.? The book is a G5

My understanding has been that there was only one printing of G67.1 (Anthology of Famous English/American Poetry-- in which Ezra Pound's poems are excluded, and which has an editorial note on p. 788 explaining that this was done over the editor's objections).? See Scot Kamins' note and articles?on this title,?all of which suggest that the second printing [G67.2]?included Pound, in response to an outcry from the public and other authors.??Today I bought a copy of this title without the "First Modern Library Giant Edition 1945" slug.? It has no Pound and has the identical editorial note on p. 788.? Does anyone else have?a second printing of 67.1, before 67.2 [with Pound included on pp. 788-798]?was made available?? Unfortunately the volume I bought has no DJ that could date it more closely.
