Wonder of Wonders. I have both 63.2 and 63.3 in the buckram binding. I
just though I was being a nut having two volumes of the same binding (B1),
but I have not noticed this difference yet because I have not cataloged
63.2 has the "running torchbearer" title page and 63.3 shows the fujita
design on the title page. Every other point is as listed above.
My 63.3 has a Spring 1967 catalog bound in - no surprise as that is the
latest catalog in any buckram. There is a hand written date in the book of
2/70, though, which makes it one of the latest buckrams that I own. Later
printing, I am sure.
Thanks for the info!
