> So, I have the same issue on the second edition jacket posted to the web site.  (My 70-70 date on the second edition is from Henry’s guide). Whoever supplied the jacket scan to Scot determined by some means that it was either 1971 or 1972.  But that is not by jacket lists – since they are long gone by then.  So the only place to put any dating is under the book date column with the indication of uncertainty. And this is likely to never be able to change.  We may never have CERTAIN dates on this second edition because jacket liast are gone and they seem to randomly put older book lists in these later editions when they had any list in the book at all.  I'm guessing the contributor of the scan went by jacket price?  Does anyone know?


I believe that date was listed due to the presence of an ISBN on the jacket.  My Auden 2nd has an ISBN and a $2.95 price.
