Notice that the title information partially covers the rectangular illustration.  No matter how hard up ML or RH were for copies of the Illustrated Alice or the Book Club selection neither would have intentionally put out something corresponding to this scan.  Would they?

But the spine appears clearly joined to the cover, and the cover -- the illustration of which is part & parcel -- is clearly different from the one we know.
