Do You Want That Book With or Without Clothes?

 

 

 

Collector Uilke Komrij has kindly pointed out several "revised" covers in the initial run of Avon books. This is perhaps the most famous; and vintage booksellers refer to their copies of Avon 318 as either "With Clothes" or "Without Clothes."

 

 

 

Here is a list of all the revised Avon covers in the BookScans Database.

Note that the same cover revision was used twice for The Amboy Dukes, but that the lettering colors change for one.
