when I look at the other-way-up illustration in my 1968 paperback, with Dick's legs pointing up, I've always felt that the latter is correct

Looking at it on my Kindle edition, it does look very ambiguous. My hard cover 1948 Cape greenbacks are out of reach, but I'm sure that you're right. After all, doesn't AR in the letter mention Dick going "head first" into the snow?
But I agree that the Cape paginator (is that what they called the layout chaps) might very excusably been more than puzzled.
