[ModLib] FMLE - John Reed, 10 days that shook the world #215

My copy, sans First Modern Library Edition on the copyright page, refers to
236 titles on both the inverse and back panel, is of the taller style 7
cover, and has blank endpapers.  Bet to go with the Toledano guide
description, which indicates no first statement and Gordon's confirmation.

There's no "first" statement on the first printing. Your copy may well be a
first, but the only confirmation of that would a spring 1935 jacket.



 

Really???

 

My notes at http://www.modernlib.com/authors/support/notes/notesReed.html
say:

.................................

First copyright page text:     First Modern Library Edition

First binding style:     7

First inverse DJ number:    236

The first edition of this title had blank endpapers. All of the copies of
this title
<http://www.modernlib.com/Identifiers/bindingsReg/bindingsReg.html#style7>
bound in <http://www.modernlib.com/authors/support/notes/notesReed.html>  s
<http://www.modernlib.com/Identifiers/bindingsReg/bindingsReg.html#style7>
tyle 7 were close to 7" tall, taller than most other titles in this binding.

.................................

 

 

How much of this is wrong?
