[ModLib] Hauptmann's Heretic of Soana -- what color is your DJ?

My Hauptmann stated first and its DJ parted ways some decades ago, so I 
didn't respond.   But Ron's input motivated me to get my copy down and look 
at it.   To my surprise, I found that the owner cut out the front DJ 'blurb' 
and attached it within.  It is tan.  Since the glue that fastened this 
fragment to the front pastedown has failed, I am able to look at the partial 
list info on the reverse.  It has enough information to say that two 1928 
titles are listed: Dreiser, Twelve Men (148), and Joyce, A Portrait (145). 
I'm not sure that this helps form any conclusions, but I'm contributing what 
info I have to the pot.

Scot, if I had a Hauptmann in jacket I'd have responded.  Promptly.  But I
don't, and I checked twice.
