Thanks for the reply.
The date in the title page strikes me as odd. It would seem that they would have fixed template for the title page and incoporating a date would require a deliberate change. I can't see how it could have occured accidentally. I believe a date on the title page is a rare thing for any publisher. So if they bothered to do it, it would seem that they would have a reason for wanting that to become their standard way of doing it. So I wonder why they would do it for just a couple titles and then only perhaps for some of those. Unless the holders of the copyrights insisted on it for some reason with these titles.
FROM JOHN PETERSON:
I checked my B/Ls and don't have any with the date incorporated into the title page, but also don't have either of the two titles (Wilde, etc.) you mention in 1,2, or 3 bindings.
I do have Turgenev Smoke, and it has the same oval logo you mention. None of the other 75 or so B/Ls I have has this logo. I seem to remember seeing it in a back issue of the Modern Library Collector, but don't know if there's anything written about it there.
