Barry Neavill has generously sent a copy of his "INTRODUCTIONS TO  
MODERN LIBRARY BOOKS, 1917-1985", an index to intros for all regular  
and giant editions through 1985. Here's a description:
This index to authors of introductions to Modern Library books is  
from [Dr. Neavill's] forthcoming bibliography, The Canon in the  
Marketplace: A Descriptive Bibliography of the Modern Library Series,  
1917-1990. It includes introductions to volumes in the regular Modern  
Library and Modern Library Giants. The author of the introduction is  
followed by the author, title, publication date, and bibliography  
number of the book being introduced. Authors who wrote introductions  
to their own books are followed directly by the title; see, for  
example, Sherwood Anderson’s introduction to the Modern Library  
edition of his novel Poor White. Introductions commissioned by the  
Modern Library and originally published in Modern Library books are  
identified by an asterisk. The lack of an asterisk indicates that the  
introduction was reprinted from a previous edition of the book or  
first appeared in a periodical. Introductions by editors of Modern  
Library anthologies are not included.

Many thanks, Barry!
