[ModLib] Various questions

Good catch on whoever noted this.  If it helps dating, I have two copies
without the introduction.  Both have a $2.45 original price, 11 bindings, D
endpapers, and k jackets.  And, I have already updated my inventory to 271.2
for these volumes.

271.2 is, I believe, available.


Is that it, then? 271.2?


If so, what are the characteristics? We know the date from Barry's comments,
and from the Info box already on ModernLib -- 1963 -- but is that Fall or
Spring? (ModernLib suggests Fall.)


 Also, what was the binding style for the new edition -- 9, 10, or 11?

Toledano lists only one entry for Faulkner's "Absalom, Absalom" as 271.1
with an introduction by Harvey Breit.  My copy in Spine #11 (dj with title
list but no number, back panel style k) has NO introduction.  Shouldn't this
be identified with a separate number?  Also, the later printings in Spine 17
and Spine 18 (the 2010 wheat/beige quartercloth) contain Faulkner's
biography and the "corrected text"; shouldn't this also be a separate entry
(since it has no number)?
