WHich of the many editions of the book do you have? I can get a copy and check for you. It's really, really weird that the blank pages fit the number sequence but no text is missing. I've seen one book, a paperback, that had the ads in a bunch of page in the middle of the book, but I don't think they were numbered. If the text is not missing, my solution would be to delete the blank pages and number the rest of the book accordingly continuously from the preceding page with text.
