The reasons for most the of the low number changes, 1 - 7, were clearly to allow the Shakespeare volumes to be consecutively numbered.

Subject: [ModLib] New Chart: Titles That Changed Numbers


As many of you already know, the Modern Library on rare occasion changed the series number of a title, assigning that number to some other title. This was likely done for some marketing reason, although no one has come forward with a verifiable reason. 
The following chart, based on data submitted by Modern Library stalwart Bill Hornick, shows the original and revised series numbers for the 17 titles affected.
Thanks to Bill for doing the look-up work and suggesting the chart.
