Naked (jacketless) MLs

There is an obsession about dj's in today's environment. When I was last in 
London I saw Bernard Rota who was an avid Maugham seller and collector. He 
told me in those days as soon as the book was bought the dj was thrown away. 
The object of the dj was to protect the book. Also many of the earlier 
bibliographies do not mention dj's at all, being quite unimportant. The first 
ML Guide had nothing about correct dj's for firsts. I often wonder if the dj 
is not more important than the book in today's world!!
Anybody who is just interested in ML books without dj I suggest might collect 
buckram, for they came without dj, and finding them is much more challenging 
than looking for regular ML without jacket. Enough.
