Gary Johnson points out this absurdity in the notes for the illustrated
Don QUixote:

"The Illustrated edition had  two printings. The first printing (fall 
1946) was for 15,000 copies and the second in 1947 was for 5,000 copies.
 On the copyright page the first printing states: "DESIGNED BY GEORGE 
SALTER. Copyright, 1946, by Random House, Inc. Manufactured in the 
United States of America. Printed by Parkway Printing Co., and bound by 
H. Wolff." The second copy has a different final sentence: "Printed by 
Parkway Printing Co., and bound by H. Wolff."

The idiot who wrote the BookNotes for ModernLib (ahem) obviously
misunderstood the real final sentence for the second edition and just
duplicated the first. Will someone who has the second edition please let
me know what it REALLY is? I can't live with the shame.
