The guide indicates #113.1 (Gilbert's Pinafore) ended in 1937. #113.2 (Pearson's Studies in Murder) took over the number in the Spring of 1938 (1st DJ 257), so the Gilbert end date seems to make sense.
However, a copy of #113.1 (Gilbert's Pinafore) has been found in a dust jacket with 265 titles on the inside, indicating a Spring 1939 printing. This implies rather strongly that #113.1 DJs were being printed at the same time as #113.2 DJs. Same number, different titles. In print at the same time.
I don't recall seeing this before. Certainly different titles with the same number could well have been on shelves for sale; but this shows concurrent printing of different titles with the same number (at least with respect to the jacket).
By the way, the Gilbert jacket had a Discontinued stamp on it.
