John and Ron,
I have a copy of this title that dates to Spring, 1936 (Gogol:Dead Souls, but no Malraux:Man's Fate). It has the New Modern Library Edition. My copy doesn't have a DJ, so I don't have that info. So the NMLE on the copyright page does seem to be bogus.

Yes, that would appear to be the case. It would be nice to have more data;
your observation says it was present in 1938, I can confirm it was not
present in 1946, 1958, nor 1962. So was it removed in the #7 to #8
transition? Can anyone else give a report from a copy in the 1932 to 1941
It seems like the mention of a previously listed copy has no relevance,
unless I've missed something in regard to it.
