Dust Jacket Paper

I have linen jackets for #26, The Complete Angler in both 1946 and 1949;
#110, David Copperfield in 1949; #89, Green Mansions in 1940.  Since I see
so few of them, I expected they were produced for just a year or three, so I
was surprised when I just now looked and saw them in use in both 1940 and
1949.  I like them as well.
