<HTML><FONT FACE=arial,helvetica><FONT SIZE=2>A question for all those collectors of firsts.
<BR>Many collectors want the first issue dj. i.e. the lowest number on a dj for a
<BR> Is this the correct approach. Bare in mind that the publisher was in the
<BR>habit of switching djs.
<BR>Question: If you see ten copies for a first (on copyright page) with a
<BR>particular dj # and one or two with a lower number, are these lower numbers
<BR>freaks, i.e. curios and not the genuine first dj. Take Boswell's Johnson, for
<BR>instance, (Regular ML): the last five or six first editions (on copyright
<BR>page), I have seen, have had #362. The Guide states #360. Is the #360 a
<BR>curiosity.....In order to allow for this I have not been too rigid in the
<BR>guide for first dj numbers, allowing a margin of error of two or three
<BR>numbers. Any opinions out there?
