Since many of the items in Merrill's books were taken from columns the
date could be from the date of a column.  Otherwise to my knowledge
there were never any different editions-only different printings.
Certainly dont know all there is to know about Mr. Merrill but did own
the rights to publish all his books at one time and published the last
reprint of Mr. Merrill's work "The Underground and other Upstate Tales".
