Because people threw them away!
My point was also about how many 1st catalog (or lets say first year,
Modern Library books in DJ exist. I can find two 1st catalog and five
catalog dust jackets at dogeared:
France: Crime of Sylvestre Bonnard (2nd Catalog?)
France: Red Lilly (1st catalog)
Ibsen: Doll's House etc. (2nd catalog)
Meredith: Diana of the Crossways (2nd catalog)
Moore: Confessions of a Young Man (2nd catalog?)
Stevenson: Treasure Island (2nd catalog)
Strindberg: Married (1st catalog)
Seven 1917 B&L Modern Library books with dust jackets, then. I assume
are more out there with collectors (anyone have a clue how many?).
thousands of ML books printed in 1917 this is an amazingly low number.
