Hi ModLib people,

I reviewed the Modern Library DJ project pages at
and have a few corrections and additions.

First let me thank Scot for the excellent job on the DJ pages.  What a
great resource!

I first list DJs I am aware of, but don't have.  Maybe some of you
out there on the list have these MLs and can scan and forward to Scot.

Scot: you need a "Wanted" page to list missing DJs - that way
we won't lose track of the missing DJs!  Alternatively, you could
put a space on the page where the DJ should be.

I also have a list of the DJs I have that were not in the DJ pages.
of these are early 1940s MLs that were discontinued by 1945 - Stendahl's

"Charterhouse of Parma," Sudermann's "Song of Songs," and several
anthologies.  Also included are a few of the post-1967 redesigned DJs
for otherwise common ML titles.  There are probably more of these
missing from the DJ pages...maybe.

It is amazing how many DJ variations there are in the ML!

I also noted a few typos.

Under the page for Snow's "Red Star over China" Scot has a space
for a 1944 there really a different earlier DJ?  Lets see it!
