[ModLib] What's Wrong with This Picture?

It appears the book presented by Scott with the buildings on the left does
not have an ISBN #.  My copy, with the buildings on the right has ISBN
394-60736-8.  So buildings on the left is an earlier printing.  My copy
configuration is G7Aj.

I don't think there's anything wrong with it. My copies of the MLG and also
the regular ML edition with this jacket have the buildings on the left. For
me the puzzle is the jacket on the website. I can only assume that someone
at Random House thought the jacket would look better with the building moved
to the other side and had it changed. I'd love to have a copy of the jacket
on the website, and wonder if it too was used for both the Bros. K. Giant
and regular ML. I'd be interested to hear from anyone who has the jacket as
shown on the website with the buildings on the right.

What do you make of this image? It was spotted on eBay a few weeks ago.
