[ModLib] Fw: First edition points for Pepys

I think the "First Modern Library Edition" on the price guide question can
be answered by looking at page 12 of Toledano, where Henry indicates B&L's
did not have FMLE on the copyright page.  I would not be surprised if Scott
corrected the site by the time you read this.

I have two copies of #103.1 Pepys' Diary in Binding #2.  They are identical,
except one has a catalogue in back and one doesn't.  The one with a
catalogue says that it includes "those published in the fall of nineteen
hundred and twenty-one."  However there are several titles in the catalogue
that are listed by Toledano as coming out in '22, e.g., Anderson and
Lawrence.  I'm guessing that either the one with no catalogue is a first, or
neither of them are firsts.  Scot's website first edition points for this
title seems to indicate that a first should say "First Modern Library
Edition," but the Price Guide has no First Edition point listed.  Anyone
know the real answer?
