  1. Thanks again Dal for keeping us all up to date.My work week starts again tomorrow at zero dark thirty.4 days out of town and just using the gray matter to break down that poem.My dad ran a bindery machine as a young man.Books galore in our house.

  2. Thanks, Dal. I didn’t pick up on the Scrapbooks before. Now I need to look at all of them. More research……

  3. This is interesting. Most notably:
    The fifth printing copy I have…and several others pics I’ve just seen ALL say out of 3,500 copies not 7,700. They also have Dark Brown covers as opposed to the light ones pictured here. And Rosewell Printing? The copy in my hand and pics all say Starline Printing and Roswell Binding….but I do believe Roswell did print PART of the book, maybe one they could glue in? So maybe it was confusing and they just wrote ‘Roswell Printing’ on accident. I can see how that may be understood if one was watching parts get printed there.

    However….all that silly random nonsense aside…the REALLY confusing thing?? Just look at that BOSS in the one photo. Just running his mouth when the sign and rules above his head CLEARLY state NOT to run your mouth. I bet he has HUGE nuts, that’s all I’m sayin 😉
