Has anyone else noticed that on top of page 33 of Chase's book The 3c Stamp the page #33 is backwards? Weird!

They fixed that in the 1975 Quarterman reprint that I have, but yes, you are correct.

Moyock, to be clear do you mean the actual page number?
I have the 1929 printing and my page 33 has the number oriented correctly.

You can see plainly that the version scanned by the Classics Society (1942 I think) has this issue.

Thank you for bringing that to our attention. I provided that PDF to the Classics Society and also did the bookmarking. I must admit that I never noticed that the page number was reversed.

Thanks Bill.

I think in today's genre, this could be referred to as an "easter egg".

Huh, I never noticed that before. I have the 1940's version and, yes, the page # is reversed. I COULD claim that I noticed it and that I assumed it was simply page EE. You know - ...30, 31, 32, EE, 34, 35... But I'd be lying.
