I list it as the last title published in fall 1961 , but it clearly came out very late in the year. The list of titles at the end of the volume and inside the jacket are fall 1961 lists. Butterfield 8 was listed in P ublishers Weekly's "Weekly Record" of newly published books in the issue of January 1, 1962.

Collector Craig Stoyle notes the following:
' O'Hara - BUtterfield 8. Your info states: " Butterfield 8 first appeared in the regular Modern Library series in the fall of 1962," and, " Butterfield 8 has a Modern Library number of 323, a number not assigned to any issue until 1962. The title appears in no Modern Library catalog or list of active titles previous to fall of 1962," and "Dates in print: 1962 [Fall] - 1970," but also states "First inverse DJ number: 403," which is fall, 1961. Butterfield is one of the unstated firsts. Toledano also lists it as 1962. My copy has fall 1961 catalogs back of book & verso of jacket (Mailer, not Hersey). Appears first should be 1961. '
Something is off, I guess. Who has an early BUtterfield 8? What's your inverse DJ number?
No, I can't do this all on my own.
