Eric,

My copy has the same browning and thickness difference due to the cheap, high-acid paper used in many style #14 printings.  Thank you for your response. See Ron Holl's response which shows that this defect occurred in only one print run and is not typical of all #14 copies.

Bill

Hi,



My #14 copy has the same list defect: ML Giants, ML Regulars G-Y, Misc., ML Regulars A-F



While the binding itself seems almost new, the text isprinted on a very thick paper with significant browning.  The text block on this copy is ~1 inch thick, compared to the 3/4 inch thickness of a copy in a #8 binding. There’s a smallred Random House (remainder?) stamp on one edge.

ML Community,
 
My recently acquired copy of The Education of Henry Adams, 76.2, in binding style #14 contains a list of Regulars that is misbound.  The list begins with titles G through Y and Misc. and then the heading with titles A through F.  Is this a constant error in binding #14 or is it just my copy (and perhaps some others)?  Thank you for taking the time check on this and responding if you have a copy style #14.
 
Bill
