ML acetate/keratol covers

the harder plastic you mention on your leatherette editions is "glassine" 
placed by conscientious book dealers and collectors to protect the book. 
Henry's guide has a method for adding this protection to all of your 
editions. Nothing says "I care" like glassine.

In the last few messages, both acetate and keratol covers have been
mentioned.  Can someone describe what each of these is, how they differ,
and how/when they were used by ML.

I have a couple leatherette volumes that have a "harder" or stiff plastic
cover (clear with no illustration or type) without dust jacket.  They seem
to fit the books perfectly, as though they were made for them, but I'm not
clear if they are original coverings of some kind or not.
