FINAL WORDS ON SCHJOTH 

   In response to Mike Jones' last question, Jørgen Sømod of 
   Denmark writes: "First edition of Schjöth published in Oslo 
   1929 I remember as dark gray paper bound." 

   George Kolbe writes: "I've handled a couple of dozen or so 
   original 1929 editions of Schjoth over the years but all I recall 
   were bound in dark red (i.e. crimson) cloth, with distinctive gilt 
   lettering [actually, I have a recollection of having seen one in 
   wrappers but that may be a figment of my imagination].  I have 
   seen multiple copies of two different bindings, and some copies 
   are taller than others, suggesting that the work may have been 
   bound in batches.  Lockhart's 1915 catalogue of his 
   collection of Chinese copper coins was issued "with flimsy 
   paper covers" though, predictably, it is usually encountered in 
   a private binding."
