 Beatrice: the Dutton /Justine /is printed off of plates akin to--but 
not identical with--the Faber first/first.  As I pointed out in that 
paper at Cincinnati, LD sent Faber a list of "muck ups."  (The list is 
at SIU-Carbondale.) One or two of those errors Faber had already caught 
before printing Justine first/first. The rest make it into the Faber 
texts a few impressions later.  Dutton never got around to making things 
right, and Penguin has no economic incentive to make them tamper with 
the text.
