I'm the one who contributed the new Flaubert dust jacket.  I was thrilled to 
hear that it was from a gift set!  Unfortunately, it's not true. [dang!]  
Underneath the dust jacket is not keratol but red balloon cloth.  The price 
listed on the inside of the dj is 95 cents,and the back of the dj says there 
are 159 books in the series.  Inside the book it says the following:

New Modern Library Edition
"Madame Bovary was first published in the Modern Library in 1918.  In the 
ensuing nine years, over 100,000 copies of the book were printed, after 
which the original plates were destroyed,  The first edition from the new 
plates was printed in May, 1927."

I hope this info helps place this particular dj design, assuming that the dj 
and book are an original match.  Both are in vg condition.
