I really dislike the perfect-bound, non-numbered issues. That's why I  
originally conceived Dogeared as dealing with sewn bindings and  
numbered spines. As it says on the Dogeared Home page:

"Welcome to Collecting the Modern Library, your first Internet stop  
for information, discussion, and leads on all aspects of collecting  
books published in the Modern Library series 1917 - 1970."

I make exception to the sewn bindings rule for the numbered paperback  
series; except for the first year of its existence (1955), the  
bindings were perfect-bound rather than sewn.

But Ron Holl may make room for them on his soon-to-be-published ML  
website if you ask him nicely.  :-D  How about it, Ron?
