Yours is only the second or third time in my dozen or so years of  
collecting that the topic of ML college editions has come up. I have  
zero evidence that anybody collects them as a genre (as opposed to  
keeping the few they have for sentimental reasons).

Because of this, as well as the fact their covers are uniformly  
boring, I don't keep them on Dogeared.

Does anybody else on this ListServ of about 130 people collect them?

Does a list of titles for the series exist?
