Connett's innovative plasticized cloth interacted with the gold stamping, and effectively dissolved it, with most copies showing only the colored upper cover inset of a spilled creel. This copy, with the front stamping surrounding the inset unusually bright, bears no printing on the spine, and perhaps the problem was not anticipated before the final production.
