OK, Neal, you will be the one to unravel this: Why was page 95 chosen to 
number? there has to be something that made that place easy to hit on? 
Such a choice could not be random.

The first printing was the Bulletin version and was apparently split into two parts (each with gray wrappers). The second printing “private” printing was bound as one volume. So, if there were two printings, were there then two separate hand numbered sets of 1-1000?

I would do the counting on this, but Mike F. is so good an minutia while goofing off (his terms, but I like it) that I will just suggest it. The reverse image mentioned by Michael S. might argue against that?

It’s an original printing that I bought online back in 2007. Despite a little water damage, it’s a very clean copy with no writing. However, “512” is hand written in black ink at the bottom of page 95.
