In light of the DJ Date Range project, here are the conventions I'm  
currently using for dates as they appear above DJ images on author  
pages. Some you know about; some are new

A single date without any other qualifying text above a dust jacket  
(for example 1937) refers to the earliest reported copy—it doesn't  
mean that the jacket image shown is a first printing dust jacket.

A date range above a dust jacket refers to the starting and ending  
years that the evidence suggests the DJ was in use.  If you have a  
dust jacket in that style that falls outside the listed range, please  
report it!

NOTE: A date followed by a question mark represents my best guess and  
definitely should not be relied upon as fact!!! Please send
