I don't know what the idea was! It's always been a mystery to me.

>> Gatsby and several other titles that were remaindered at this time were outfitted with newly printed jackets stamped DISCONTINUED TITLE.
>Thanks Gordon.  I didn't know new jackets were printed, then stamped.  I thought they took the book with the existing jacket and stamped them.  I suppose the idea was to have a fresh list of titles on the jacket?
>I just found this on modernlib.com, under the Gatsby jacket description:
>"There was a second printing in fall 1939 (268 titles) created especially to cover all unsold stock. All these jackets were hand-stamped "Discontinued Title.”
>We should add similar text for Gilbert.
