The B&L Catalog

Maybe I'm not looking close enough, but I see references in Henry's book 
regarding a B&L catalog and determining firsts by the catalog number. Where 
is this catalog?

For example: Tolstoy's Death of Ivan Ilyitch would be a first if it's a "C5" 
in the B&L catalog, but in the catalog in the back of the book it is number 
64.

I've been using the book lists date to help date the book i.e. the season 
and year the catalog is available. Is this less or more accurate than the 
B&L Catalog I'm not seeing?

Sorry if this one of those under my nose answers.

Thanks everyone!

ohmygoodness!!! another ML virgin with a question even the likes of I can 
answer. I'm soooo excited!!!

Leatherette bindings were used from the ML inception in 1917 til 1929 when 
they shifted to balloon cloth over stiff boards. The B&L name was dropped 
after 1925. for more info, here's a helpful link to getting started

http://dogbert.abebooks.com/abe/TextToHtml?t=feature+story&h=x&f=cc/features/modernlibrary.htm

and of course check out www.dogeared.com

and welcome to the club steve, but be a pal and don't drive the prices up 
much more.

faithfully,
david medsker

I noted last week on this list that B&L books were considered desirable.  I 
found two at a local bookshop (Chekhov and G. Moore) but I also found two 
MLs with the same type of leatherette covers but not B&L (Tolstoy and 
Sudermann), and they also have no dates in them.  Do these MLs have a 
special name and are they worth looking for in particular?

Thanks for your patience with a novice question,

Steve
