Hi ModLib folks,
A question for the ML experts: Was there any particular reason
that ML did not indicate dates of reprint in ML editions?
A bookseller asked me this question - she noted MLs with late
1800s dates on them that were obviously printed in the 1960s
as an example (maybe a Hardy title). This is also a problem on
eBay were sellers assume the date on the ML is the date of printing
('in great shape for a book printed in 1897!).
I am assuming if there were dates on MLs they were there because
But why not include a date of reprinting (like Everyman's Library)?
