[ModLib] Interesting PBW Jacket

Bill Hornick found a copy of a 1980s PBW (plain brown wrapper) ML in a
type p jacket which has an ISBN-13 printed on the back.  Image of jacket
back is attached.  The title is Shaw's Saint Joan, etc.

The 13 character ISBN came about in 2007, I believe.  The jacket has no
indication of the original 9 digit SBN present in the lower right corner
of the standard PBW jacket back.  Instead this full ISBN13 with barcode is
there, along with, and above, the ISBN10 (preceded by "ISBN").

Has anyone seen anything like this?  Fifteen to twenty years later the ML
prints a PBW jacket for a #15 binding?  Or was the "978" prefix available
before 2007?  Bill will have more information later, such as what the
binding looks like and if there is an ISBN13 (or anything else
interesting) on the copyright page.
