Re your comment below:

"Not to mention that the book did not get a hard bound printing until it sold several millions copies in paperback. I, THE JURY was a Signet Paperback Original."

Someone may already have pointed this out (I get the digest these days), but that's simply not true.

Dutton did the hardback first. The Signet edition was a reprint, not a PBO.

I'm not sure what your point is, here. If you're claiming that most of the sales of ITJ were in paperback, that's quite correct. I'm not sure the hardback even went into a second printing after the first edition sold out.

But your sequence of events is wrong.
