I have a copy with the bridge that has 265 titles on both the inverse and rear panel.  I have a copy with Tess holding a bundle of wheat on the front panel that lists 257 titles on both the inverse and front panel.
I just sent an eMail re: jackets having different front but the same back panels.  Both my copies have the g back panel.

Subject: [ModLib] Tess of the D'Urbervilles jacket

Does anyone have a balloon cloth copy Tess of the D'Urbervilles (72) in the green pictorial jacket showing a couple on a stone bridge over a stream? The jacket was designed by Paul Galdone (unsigned) in October 1938, so it could have replaced the earlier pictorial jacket in the final balloon cloth printing before the introduction of the larger format. If you have it on a balloon cloth printing, let me know the number of titles inside the jacket so I can date it.

Many thanks!
