John Wolansky did some comparisons between two copies of Varieties of Religious Experience,1962 and 1967. He discovered  that the later edition omits the list of other works, the notes on the author, and has a different pagination for the contests. Here's a chart he constructed:

1962       1967

  X             X           Half title page

  X                           List of other works by James

  X             X           Title page

 X             X           Copyright page

  X                           Notes on author

  X             X           Dedication

ix-xv      vii-xiii     Contents

  X             X           Preface

So this begs these questions: 

(1) Was 1967 the first year of the changes, or did it happen earlier?  
(2) Are the deletions (list of other works, notes on the author) enough to warrant a new collectable variety (HO - pun there) with the need for a new Tole# (70.3)?
