This is quite a commom occurrence, see for example my article here:http://chessbookchats.blogspot.co.uk/2016/08/common-books-in-uncommon-dust-jackets.htmlPublishing pictures of rainbows with the colours "the wrong way round" is a similar error.

Recently, a cheap but popular chess set I saw had the co-ordinates on the wrong sides of the board (d1 was a dark square).
