My copy of Anthology of Light Verse dates to Spring 1947 per the Dating Guide; the inverse of the jacket has Aristotle, Introduction... but not Lewis, Dodsworth.
The DJ back style is h5. (no price, no check my account).

Subject: [ModLib] Anthology of Light Verse: End Date

The Anthology of Light Verse (48.2) is given an end date of 1953 in
Henry's guide and was carried forward to ModernLib.  The number 48 was
taken over in 1956 by Huxley's Brave New World.

Is there any information that would lead to giving an end date for 48.2
before 48.3 was released?  Light Verse shows up in the jacket catalogs
through (and including) Spring 1956.  Fall 1956 has 48.3, with 48.2

If there is not, we should consider changing that end date.  The latest
jacket reported for 48.2 is h(4); the h(5) jacket came out in 1947
(although old jacket styles were sometimes used for a very long time after
they were no longer the 'current' jacket).

Any reports of a 1950s list in a 48.2 jacket (or either an h(5) or i type
jacket) is appreciated.
