It's bad enough when mistakes creep into a published work, but it's particularly embarrassing when errors occur on the binding. Let me know what examples you are aware of, and I'll compile a list.
The topic came up a couple weeks ago at a meeting of my Northern Virginia numismatic social group, Nummis Nova. Mike Packard bought along a book to show everyone. I have a copy as well and I scanned an image of the cover. It's a special hardbound edition of Medals of the United States Assay Commission, originally published in the pages of the TAMS Journal, the official publication of the Token and Medal Society.
QUICK QUIZ: what's the mistake? (Click on the image to see a larger version on Flickr).
