The ML used the spelling Chekhov 1917‑1930, T chekov 1930 ‑1956 , and reverted to Chekhov in fall 1956.

The title page of my Chekhov Spine 11 reads “The Short Stories of Anton Chekhov.”

ML Collectors, 
I need your help.  Whether the name was Tchekhov or Chekhov, his Stories always appeared in dust jackets that said "The Short Stories of Anton..." 
The title pages, the ML official title of the book, however, always said "The Stories of Anton..."  That is until I acquired a spine #14 of 50.5 whose title page reads "The Short Stories of Anton Chekhov." 
The ML website's BookNotes and Confirmed Bindings pages say that 50.5 also exists in bindings #10 and #11.  Can any ML collector tell me what each title page says?  I am trying to determine the first binding that appeared with the new title-page title; was it #10, #11 or my #14? 
Also, should the ML website recognize this title change?  If so, how?  Would mention in the BookNotes for 50.5 suffice or would it merit a  new Toledano number as all previous title-page changes (except Moll Flanders with the &C. and two varieties of six lines of subtitle) have received? 
Whatever the answers to my questions, the ML Community should know that there is a collectible variety of 50.5 out there.  Thank you for your help.
