To better describe the book, it is a 8/i, 370 titles, $1.45 price, copyright
1950. The front of the dust jacket is the non-pictorial design, brown insert
with a green boarder. The inside flap begins with Gulliver's Travels - A
TALE OF A TUB THE - BATTLE OF THE BOOKS - BY JONATHON SWIFT - Introduction
by Carl Van Doren - "No more savage book was ever written," says Carl Van
Doren of Gulliver's Travels.

The earliest printing I've seen with the Heilman introduction is spring 1951
 This is probably the first printing with the introduction. The jacket is
the same non-pictorial design as earlier jackets except that the the front
inset panel is? brown instead of green, and the lettering outside the panel
is green instead of brown, and the flap text is rewritten. The flap
specifically states that the introduction is by Heilman.
 
 
 
This jacket was replaced?by fall 1955 (the earliest I've seen, anyway) with
a new pictorial jacket in deep purple and light greenish blue. The flap text
of this jacket reverts to the text used on pre-1951 printings. My fall 1955
flap indicates that the introduction is by Heilman (below the title and
author) but reverts to the earlier flap text beginning: "'No more savage
book was ever written,' says Carl Van Doren of Gulliver's Travels." I don't
know whether the reversion to the earlier text was deliberate or inadvertent
 but mine doesn't say the introduction is *by* Van Doren.
 
 
 
I haven't seen the spring 1954 printing you describe. I assume it's the
purple and light blue pictorial jacket I have? O r is it the final printing
of the nonpictorial jacket?

According to the Guide, 100.2 was published from 1931-1950 with an intro by
Van Doren and 100.3 from 1950-1958 with an intro by Heilman.
?
 
I have a style 8 book, copyright 1950, with a Heilman intro but the inside
front flap of the dust jacket says the intro is by Van Doren. I thought it
was a mismatched cover and book but the jacket inverse lists 370 titles
which makes it a 1954 publication?which belongs?on the book with the Heilman
intro.
?
 
What do I have? Are the jacket and book mismatched? Was the 100.2 edition
published as late as 1954 in variance to the Guide or?did the flap
description from the 100.2 edition continue to be used for 4 years into the
Heilman edition?
