ML Paperback Questions

Mon Jan 9 07:02:11 EST 2006


P68 was published in May 1960.  The figures I have from the
archives are for the 1959-60 year.  There are no figures for
the 4 titles published in May, but there are figures for the
April titles.

Titles were usually batched into publishing seasons.  Of the
1959 titles, 6 were published in January and 9 in November. 
The 1960 titles are listed in this document as having been
published in April and May.  P60 and P66-68 are listed for
May, P62-65 for April.  P61, announced as Turgenev, Fathers
and Sons, was published in Vintage Books instead of MLP.

All the best,

>Do you have the print numbers for P68, The Art of Scientific
Investigation?  That one seemed to be tough to find also.  I
guess it would be logical that the Spring 1960 titles would
have the least printings (or printing opportunity) since they
only had one season.
>Following on that question, did ML release the paperbacks
singly during the season, or all at the start?  So, for
example in Spring 1960, did P60 come out first, followed later
by P62, then P68 last?  Or did all 8 get released at once?
