The "big, clean, interesting books" became so popular in 1911 that
the publisher had a tremendous backlog by 1912 that it didn't expect
to clear up until after January 1929?

(I write this only because I am presently tussling with 3 manuscript
copies of the same original (which is not extant) that either claim
or appear to date the original and themselves in confusing and
inconsistent ways.)
