Thanks, John. So now the question is was Twelve Men released in the Fall or in the Spring of 1928.

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.
