Scot,
  Better to know, I always say!
  Thanks for your efforts (and Ron's).  These data give me, as a newcomer, a better feel for my challenge.

  Folks,

After guessing about the ModernLib statistics for years, I decided to 
do some actual counting. Here are the real totals from the ModernLib 
database of titles and dust jackets. (Thanks to Ron Holl for help 
with the counting.)

Total on author and MISC pages, unique: 1490

TITLES
Unique titles (counting anthologies): 794
Regular issue titles (all unique): 622
Giant titles - total: 119
Giant titles - unique: 114
Paperback titles - total: 68
Paperback titles - unique: 58

AUTHORS
Authors (not counting multi-author anthologies): 431

AUTHORS WITH MORE THAN 10 DJ IMAGES
William Faulkner (14 titles for 24 images)
Fyodor Dostoyevsky (6 titles for 24 images)
Oscar Wilde (8 titles for 16 images)
Thomas Hardy (4 titles for 17 images)
James Joyce (4 titles for 13 images)
Walt Whitman (3 titles for 11 images)

Green Mansions 8

I kept most of the calculated data and added them as new elements to 
the appropriate indexes:
