The "discography" is the Appendix list of phonograph records beginning on p. 
464, right?  I have three copies with that list: one is a FMLE with 316 
titles, one is a stated FMLE but with a Spring, 1948 list in the back, one 
is from Fall, 1949.  I also have a 241.2 (Fall, '62) with 415 titles.

Gary Johnson sent in this report on Burk's "Life & Works of Beethoven" :

> 241.1 Burk (with discography)  dj backstyle i (spring 1959 per Neavill, 
> 385 titles, Auden present, Salinger not present)  This does not seem 
> possible, since 241.1 was only printed through 1950, but my 241.1 is in a

I'd like to confirm the dates I have in the BookNotes for that title:

First copyright page text:     First Modern Library Edition

First binding style:     8

First inverse DJ number:      316

Dates in print:     1946 - 1950 (discography)
                              1950 - 1970 (no discography)
