Hi MODLIB (& jbpickens, cc'ed),
As people near completion of whatever they believe is a
complete set of MLs it is curious to see titles they are

A quick check of online sources reveal no copies with
this specific title. But I looked at the Dogeared pages
and there is a 1930 jacket which must be this (2.2) title.
It is on the Strindberg page, top right. I don't have this
title but bet that the binding indicates "Married" only.
Thus I suspect at least some of the many Strindberg
"Married" titles I found using Bookfinder are actually
2.2 Married (with Miss Julie). Indeed, some of those
titles seem to suggest later balloon cloth binding, which
would be 2.2.

This is a different story. While many Une Vie's are
about, the later 57.2 seems quite elusive - one of the
few in Henry's Guide with a "?" in the jacket column
(meaning, I suppose, that neither Henry nor any of
his correspondents had a copy in a jacket).
This book is one of my favorite ML obscurities, having
found a copy, with the jacket tucked in the back, in
a bookstore a few blocks from my house (for $6). If
you really want a Dracula or Maltese Falcon in a jacket
you can find one. Not so for Une Vie/Bel Ami.
