Folk,

 

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.
