I was doing some housekeeping in my JG stuff and found this module which doesnt fit to any of the printings stated in the JG subweb.
Hereby some elements which makes me difficult to identify it:
* Front cover is like 2nd print but without nr, price and header
* Back cover shows and artwork of a 3rd print (by Siembieda, 1979)
* Page number is 50 because the maps provided with the errata in the 2ndprint are now within the book
* There is not a booty list at the end of book

Thanks for any help on this topic!

I believe that is an incomplete 3rd print.  You are missing the front & back cover. Can't check mine at the moment to verify, just going by memory.

Didn't some printings had an unattached front cover, but no back cover?

Yeah a cover sheet belonged to the 4th print, but this I think is a 3rd print (though even if a 4th) is missing the outer page i.e. the books front & back cover.  I recall the 2nd print's cover without price etc being a page of one of the later prints, plus the lack of product list is where I'm thinking both front and back tore away at some point.  I wish I could get to mine to truly confirm.

Thanks, it might be like you say, Shane.
However artworks on the first page are different in each print run and the artwork of mine version is from a second print...
If i understand correctly, this would mean that a 3rd print has a single page not stapled as a cover and behind it you have the artwork of the old version, correct?
