Yes I'm sure you're right it's a common mistake!

It would be interesting to know what was the proportion of hardcover to softcover in that first edition. Another reason to see if there are any publishing records locked in a vault somewhere...

Ive tried contacting norwegian publishing houses for early norwegian editions and there is just little or no data. All the mergers and buy-ups in publishing make it extra hard.

Excellent! I wondered what was going on with having Swedish 1959-61 softcovers and seeing you all discussing same period hardcovers. I guess we need to collect both ūüĎć

A bit pricey for the condition and it being an ex library too. It seems people buy at any price nowadays.
