There wasn't really a drop in the pre-publication figure for CC because, according to Hammond, a further 3,000 copies were printed for the same publication date (Nov 1934), making 7,000. For PP there was again a further printing, making a total of 10,000. So the graph line goes steadily upwards. I would imagine that one of the factors prompting further printing was pre-publication orders received from bookshops. As AR's reputation rose, so did the advance orders.
