I don’t have a pic attached to this email.  Am I the only one?

I've seen several B&L titles bound in blue cloth.  I don't know the circumstances but have always assumed that the ML's binder ran out of imitation leather and used blue cloth instead.

Folks,

 

Collector Tom Mavis sent this oddity on to me. Anybody know about hardbacks like this? The logo dates the book to 1923-1925, too early for any hardback that I’ve seen. The size is 6 3/4 by 4 1/2.
