From "The Will James Books" by Don Frazier

under Smoky Classic Edition page 36

"First Issue: The first issue of the Illustrated Classic was published after Sand in 1929. It is about impossible to identify if you only look at the copyright page. In point of fact, in the first dozen years that Scribner's republished this edition, only one page differs from the original. Fortunately, that one page is always different right up to 1942. The one different page faces the title page. If it lists Sand at the top of the list, the book so blessed is the 1929 first of the Classic edition."
