Uhh, no, I don't think so. At Red Wagon Bookworks, the books that go out in
sheets to other binders are still considered part of the edition. They get
numbered just the same as the others do. If it's a sticking point for you,
you might want to add something to your colophon, say... "A portion of the
edition reserved in sheets" or something to that effect. This should be
enough of a tip to collectors that there may be other bindings out there.
