[ModLib] Capote, Selected Writings

The first ML printing (1965) does not have a First statement. However, there is a spring 1965 Giants list at the end of the volume that includes Spengler, Decline of the West but not the anthology Parodies. 

The ML edition of Selected Writings of Truman Capote was discontinued in 1973 or 1974.  It was restored to the ML in the "reissue" format in 1980.  The verso of the title page states: FIRST MODERN LIBRARY EDITION, 1963 [sic].  1963 was the publication date of the original Random House edition.

Now, this IS odd.  

My BookNotes page for the title does say FMLE, which I evidently copied from The Guide. On my page about unmarked firsts ( http://www.modernlib.com/Identifiers/hiddenFirsts.html ) this title is NOT listed. 

But my own copy,  marked as a first, doesn't have FMLE. I'm usually pretty careful about noting my own firsts.  The archives show that Scott (who initiated this thread) asked about this back in 2005, but he didn't get an answer.

Greetings, The site suggests that a first modern library statement has been seen for Capote's Selected Writings, number 353.  I have not seen one,but one authority, Andes book on the ML states that one has not been seen. So does someone have one or is this a misprint on the site? thank you
