OK..I wasn't sure. Maybe I'm making things more difficult than they have to be.. lol-But on page 21 IV-B the first line introduces an new note in the first bar, second beat. Looks like a triplet .I've never seen that with the two broken lines on each side of a 16th. looks like the quarter note is divided into three even notes. Not sure how to play that..I guess you just play the first three beats of the 4?I've got an older copy of the book from when it was first released. I don't have a V-1 section (reading/melodies) but do have a V-A on page 22, and there is no triplet notation.
Here's a pic of that section of the my copy of NB:

I scaned the book and didn't see any triplets at all (not that you couldn't transpose to triplet/swing feel).
The notation is 'standard' and accurate, so you should see a triplet arch/bracket with "3" above the group of notes to indicate they should be played as triplets.
And what is the difference between that and this triplet with solid lines?
