>> I have a first printing of Rockwell Kent 182.1 Wilderness in a red  6
>> binding. The special Kent endpapers present. Both forewards present, First
>> Modern Library Edition 1939 present. 243 pages, no catalogue at end of text.
>>
>>  DJ backstyle is d, pictorial as on the web site. However, the notes

>>
>> A COMPLETE LIST OF  TITLES IN THE MODERN LIBRARY (no number mentioned)
>>
>> across the top of the catalogue.

>> The highest number in the catalogue is Fielding, Henry  Tom Jones 185.
>> This indicates the catalogue is post fall 1930 (Gordon Neavill indicates
>> Goethe 177 highest number) but prior to spring 1931 (Neavill indicates
>> Conrad 186 highest number). Jacket is therefore from early 1931, as 184
>> Bennett and 185 Fielding are 1931 releases.

> Does anyone else have a 182.1 jacket with fewer than 190 titles?  The Web
>> site indicates 190 titles as the fewest for this jacket, but mine has only
>> 185.
