I've seen the following B&L titles in variant bindings (dark red imitation 
eather or blue cloth):
Norris, McTeague (dark red imitation leather)
oman Question (dark red imitation leather)
eats, ed., Irish fairy and folk tales (non-flexible binding in blue cloth)
iana of the Crossways (non-flexible binding in blue cloth)
ilbert, Mikado (non-flexible binding in blue cloth)

 have copies of a couple of these; the others were in the collection of the 
ioneering ML collector John Ely which is now at the Beinecke Library at Yale.
I've always assumed (without documentary evidence) that the ML was testing a new 
inding or the B&L binder ran short of the regular binding material.
Does anyone have other examples?
