I can confirm Barry's comments- no Apuleius listed on the DJ.

O'Neill's Emperor Jones and The Straw was a spring 1928 title and has a spring 
928 list at the end of the volume. The first jacket (Henry's Dj3) has a spring 
928 list (includes Dumas, Three Musketeers but not Apuleius, Golden Ass). The 
ack panel makes no reference to 150 (or any other number) titles.  I believe 
he reference to 150 titles on the back panel began in fall 1928. 
The second printing of the book, with a fall 1928 list at the end of the volume 
includes Apuleius but not Dostoyevsky, Brothers Karamazov), retains the "First 
odern Library Edition 1928" statement on the verso of the title page.
My own copy is the second printing of the book with a first printing jacket.

In Henry's guide, the first state dust jacket is listed as having no #.  I
ave a stated first edition with no # referred to on the inverse of the
acket, but the back panel mentions 150 titles.  The titles listed on the
nverse indicate a spring 1958 printing.  In the guide on page 174, Henry
oints to the back panel as the source of some numbers.  I am thinking I
ave a first state DJ.  Anyone have a copy with no titles referred to on
ither the inverse or back panel?
John
