Could it not be a British edition, as originally
Penguin is a UK pocketbooks series going on since WW2
(or even before if I'm not mistaken).
Some British followers could probably confirm?
... and Frank could check in his copy the copyright
markings on the first pages (if any) or the printing
identification (could be on the first pages or on the
end pages) that is normally given by the publisher,
and that could confirm the origin or the book.
