Chad and Art,

Thanks for your reply.  It sounds like we all have books from the same batch 
of leftovers.

Hi John and Chad:



My IML Don Quixote is in the same Spring 1948 DJ (334 titles with Aquinas 
but no Dickinson), is in green boards with black title field and top stain 
with blank endpapers (as are my other IML Don Quixote's) and does mention 
Parkway. Sounds like the same book as originally printed, just with newer 
plain boards and a regular DJ.

Hi John,
I have an IML Don Quixote identical to your description. My copy does not 
have a jacket but, if it is any indication, the boards are green with black 
title field and top stain.

Today in our public library book stall I found an Illustrated Don Quixote in 
a Regular #8 binding, a pretty good buy for $2.   In the discussion in 
March, 2015 about IML titles in regular ML bindings on this list serve, 
Barry Neavill stated that they are usually bound with dark green Kent 
endpapers.  The copy I found has blank endpapers, and is evidently from the 
first batch of 15,000 copies printed in 1946 (verso of the title page 
mentions Parkway Printing—see the description of the Quixote Illustrated on 
the ML website on the Don Quixote webpage), not the 1947 printing of 5,000 
(no mention of Parkway).  The regular ML dust jacket on my find dates to 
Spring, 1948.  I’m puzzled by this book being from the first printing: I 
would think that any leftover copies of this IML would be from the 1947 
printing.

In the March 2015 list serve discussion, Art Marshall said that he had an 
IML Quixote in  a regular ML binding.  I wonder if his has blank endpapers, 
and is also from the first printing?
