[ModLib] Within A Budding Grove

I have a green cover copy of "Within a budding grove."  It is a type 10, based on frontpiece icon, with a type j dj.  this seems to be mismatched as the type j dj was from 53 to 59 and and the type 10 book was from 63.  this info is from Toledano;s guide.  I once visited Cambre over in France, actually Illers Cambrey, where Proust is reputed to have written.  I found there, the pronunciation of his name is like roost.  It seems the patrons in the coffee shop where I asked for directions, thought it very funny that I asked for oust.  the people who ran the site wouldn't let me in, must have thought I was American.

An image of the "Green" 172.1 will be displayed at modernlib.com very soon.  
Image is of a jacket reportedly, but not yet verified, to be from 1963.

 The jacket is from the early 1960s. The ML stopped listing titles inside the 
ackets of new titles in 1960. The last printing I've seen with the gray jacket 
s fall 1960. My forthcoming bibliography dates the green jacket on coated white 
aper as fall 1964, which must be based on the list at the end of the volume. I 
onder if a second leaf of the MLG list at the end of your copy is missing. 
nfortunately I don't have a
 copy in my own collection to check. I've seen at 
east two copies of this jacket, including one in Alan Oestreich's collection.

s the same as the 1950 edition pictured on modernlib.com. The silhouette is

atalog listing , but there is a giant catalog listed in the back first title is 
ar and Peace G1last title is An American Tragedy G80. Has anyone seen this type
