Shifreen & Jackson question the limitation, citing the print run needed for profitability, and frequency on the market, though they do speculate that the 3 states of the first [ours given priority] may each have had a run of 250 cc.
Shifreen & Jackson also debunk the notion this book printed by John Henry Nash, citing Miller correspondence noting otherwise.
This first state binding increasingly uncommon, especially in the original jacket.
