Tom you've whetted my appetite!  Gotta go ML fishing tomorrow!
I like this old style short history series books like "Islam" with the
pictoral boards.  I think these MLs will become cherished by
collectors as they seem very unusual for the series and are being
phased out?  

Not that I'm a speculator, I'm just a collector.  I don't have the
room or money to stock up on what I think will become sought after.

I don't think it's "worth" a whole lot ('cept to me!) but I found what
cleaned up to be a great copy of "In Dubious Battle" at a library
discard sale.   Amazing what some Zippo fluid and a brodart can do!
