John, I have a non-first copy of this title, w/o Pound, and it turns out to be just like yours: 306 titles inside the DJ, 309 on the outside.

  Thinking I was buying a copy of this title in a first since it excluded Ezra Pound, I surprisingly discovered there was more than one printing of this title without Ezra Pound.   That point seems to be covered in the notes to the 1st of this volume on Scott's site.  Something else caught my eye, though.  The dj on the second printing has the same number of titles on the inverse as my first in this volume, 306, but the number of titles referred to on the back panel of the jacket is different.  In my first, the back panel refers to 307 titles, on the subsequent printing, it refers to 309 titles.  I guess we an conclude the inverse total is a good guide as to printing date, but not necessarily 100% all the time.

  Just an observation.  I previously pointed out a copy of G-22, On War by Clausewitz, where the inverse and back panel both refer to 292 titles and on a later printing the inverse refers to 284 titles and the back panel of the jacket refers to 299 titles.

  My thought was that the inverse and outside of the jackets are printed separately, causing some to appear to be out of sync.

  As I said, just an observation.
