Pagination and Table of Contents
The publication record includes the note "Some copies have a binding error, missing the table of contents (page ix)." I have two copies of this publication with neither of them having a table of contents. The puzzle is, page ix is numbered and is the last page of the Introduction. I can't see how a binding error could cause page ix to be the table of contents.
The pagination for my copy is:
front endpaper [i] half title [ii] (blank) [iii] title page [iv] copyright page [v] dedication [vi] (blank) [vii] Introduction viii -Introduction ix -Introduction [x] (blank)  start of text ... ... 244 end of text  (blank)  (blank) endpaper
