Ron, I have the one that think John Wolansky said he had, Fall, 1947: 329 
titles, Dodsworth, no Acquinas according to the date key.

Thanks Barry, that confirms what we are seeing.  I suggest we update
ModernLib to make the end date for 48.2 1956.

Scot, in addition to updating the end date, I think we should put an item
in the book note saying the latest this title has been seen.  Bill H and
John W both have Spring 1947, however I believe there is a Fall 1947 Light
Verse in the John Peterson Modern Library Collection.

Also, this title apparently had too many boards made in or around Spring
1947 (some were reused on Mrs. Dalloway).  Perhaps they still had enough
from 1947 to last until 1956.
