I have a shelf for ML oddities.  This would go on that shelf. There has 
to be a story behind it, however commonplace an error it may have been.  
Funny, this is truly a "hurt" volume - none of my (few) MLs with the 
circled H are damaged or bound upside down or anything like that.  I 
guess that is why they started calling them remainders.  But, in 1930, 
every penny counted!
