[ModLib] Chronicles dustjacket-spine number mismatch

I have a first printing of "Inventing Japan" which also has the mismatched spine (12) and dust jacket number (11).  Likewise, my first printing of "The Company" has an "11" spine and "12" dust jacket.  If memory serves me correctly, "The Company" came after "Inventing Japan."  These were the first two volumes published after the first ten with the translucent dust jackets.

That is really interesting.  I look forward to seeing the resolution of this.

If you are a Chronicles collector, can you check if you have any additions to make to the Chronicles list at Amenities:
