Somewhere packed away I also have an ML with inverted rear endpapers.  I can’t remember the title, but I know it’s a binding #8.  I’ve also seen one that had double endpapers in the back—can’t remember if I bought it or not.  The best such mistake that I found was a copy of God’s Little Acre that had a double dust jacket on it.  My hunch is that all of these were processed on a Monday.

Question from a new collector, so sorry if this is so commonplace as to be boring for you all:

I have come upon a very nice edition of Arthur Schitzler's Bertha Galan, sadly without a dust jacket. The website dating key puts this as a Spring 1930 printing. I was curious to notice that the inside back cover and the facing page which include the Kent torchbearer image, are afixed upside down. I was just wondering whether this is any sort of real oddity. To be clear, I am certainly not supposing that this would add any monetary value, but was just wondering whether it is enough of a curiosity for the group here to find interesting. Or this this simply a commonplace occurrence?

Thanks for any enlightenment that might be forthcoming.

Best from northern California,
