Hi Modlib,

I added Henry's buckram's to the list.  We are now up to
141 regulars and still at 13 giants.

Some stats:

Regulars: 141 out of 376 regular buckrams = 37.5%
Giants: 13 out of 71 giant buckrams = 18.3%
Total: 154 out of 447 buckrams = 34.4%

Henry's idea that the Giants are more rare than the regulars
seems to hold up here.  It is also curious that we have
accounted for only 1/3 of the buckram titles that were
supposed to have been available.


A few remaining questions:

Henry T.: is your 187 the two novel Faulkner (187.2) or the edition
with only 'The Sound and the Fury' (187.3)?

John Wolansky: do you really have a buckram copy of G59.1: Hemingway:
Short Stories?  This was allegedly discontinued in 1955, so a decade
before these buckrams were available.

Any other additions or corrections welcome.

John K.
