P.S.  It would be interesting to find out what other ML titles have their lineage from this 1930 sale.

I would guess it has to do with the fact that Modern Library bought Sun Dial Library in the spring of 1930, including their stock, titles and rights.  I would (further) guess this purchase included  this title which was published by Sun Dial ca. 1924, and began as an ML title in 1931, as well as the cover artwork done by the mysterious J.E.S.  (I got this info from #19 of the Modern Library Collector.)

Hi all, 

Attached a photo of the dust jackets for the Sun Dial Library and Modern Library 
editions of Morley's Parnassus on Wheels. 

Anyone know the reason for the similarity? (I know, so I guess this is a quiz)
