      I have no idea. The pages are uneven, but the typeset seems consistent. The page
      that seems to be removed is directly connected to the title page. The cut also
      cut through part of the content page, so I'm guessing a razor blade of some
      type. The only thing I can think that might be a reason, might be something of a
      personal note. The 45 is hand written in a style that reminds me of pen and ink

      I'm sorry I can't be of more help.

      There is a book plate in the front of the book with the name "Helen Biddle
      Griscom Bettle"

      Are you sure there ever *was* a copyright page?

      Does it look like it was printed modernly, or is it older? E.g. are
      all of the letters lined up correctly, or are there
      problems/smudges/etc.? Sewn binding--so it is open at both ends, or
      is it wrapped (I don't know the bookbinding terms here)? Does it
      appear to be late 20th C. or does the printing appear more like
      something you'd expect in the early 20th C or even late 19th C.

      Do you have pictures?
