There was a 7.5" printing of Flowering Judas in 1969 or 1970 with the Fujita torchbearer on the title page.  It's interesting that the ML was still produc ing buckrams at that date, since they started to discontinue ML titles in the regular binding on a massive scale in 1971.

Hi folks, 

Brian LeMasters submitted this interesting find -- a 284.1 Porter, Flowering Judas in a buckram binding. The interesting thing is the size -- 7.5 " tall. Anyone else have any buckrams in this size? 

Here's a link to Brian's amazon-sized Porter:  http://www.modernlib.com/Identifiers/Buckram.284_porter.jpg
