Subject: Preliminary 'Actually Seen' Buckram List

Hi Modlib,

Since I suggested it, I compiled the list of 'Actually Seen'
titles in 1960s ML buckram bindings based on the messages
sent to the list in the last few days.  Thanks for your

A few of the titles need to be checked - all are noted with
an asterisk.  One oddball is 59.1 Hemingway: Short Stories
which was discontinued in 1955.

I also checked on and a few other WWW used book
sites, and only a few buckrams showed up (all are titles
already on our list).

There do not seem to be many of the scarce 60s titles here,
except 361.1 Tolstoy: Short Stories II and 357.1: Updike:
Poorhouse Fair and Rabbit, Run.  As far as I know, the
Tolstoy is only a FMLED.  Scot: Does your copy of 361.1
in buckram state FMLED?  Remember that buckrams are never
supposed to state FMLED.

Finally: for updates to the next Toledano Guide: 164.3 Pascal:
Pensees is not in the list on p. 92 of the Guide.  That list
was indespensible in compiling this list from the numbers sent
to modlib.

Please let me know any corrections or additions...there must
be more titles than those listed below.
