My copy is the size that the regular Scribner hardbacks always are. Could the copy you found be a Taiwan bootleg? I have seen other books in the past that have been bootlegged and they are usually smaller. If they are then you will find on the last page writing in Taiwanese. They look the same (other than being smaller in size) as the legit copies but use a thinner paper.

Was going to buy outsiders today but the book seemed like book club size. It did have price on jacket which book club books usually don't. Just wondering is the regular 1st edition hardcover book a little on small side? Thanks, Don
Check the copyright page -- does it have a numberline where "1" is the lowest digit?
