Hi Folks,

Somebody (IU think it was Joe) said that one of the characteristics of 
ML's in book club editions was the lack of a price on the dust jacket 

I've found a small batch of these in my collection, curiously all from 
the same period clumps as identified by the "Which of these outstanding 
XXX books numbers  377  (later 1956 I think) and 388 (late 1959 or early 

I also have a Nostromo from 1968 with no price.

The quality of the paper is no worse than other ML's, and the 
characteristic "book club dimple" is missing from the rear cover.
