Brothers Karamazov

Barry makes a good point that applies to all Modern Library firsts. Check the 
title listing carefully. And don't go solely by the number of titles quoted. 
Look at the individual titles to confirm the date of the book and DJ. These 
recent discussions on Flaubert- Salammbo and Brothers K are very useful in 
illustrating the problem in solely accepting the first statement on the 
copyright page as an absolute indication of a First Modern Library Edition.
<< If youre contemplating paying big bucks for a BROTHERS 
 KARAMAZOV first, make sure there arent blank leaves at the 
 beginning and end of the volume!
