Would it be possible for you to post a few of the different cover scans for those of who haven't seen them before?  Then I'll know what to look for!

thanks,
Mark Suchanek

  Toby,

  The Chronicles series has expanded their titles since Armstrong's Islam.  They have also published paperback editions of most of the titles.  And the hardbacks no longer have the see-through jackects with the pictorial covers visibile through the jacket.  Some titles have been published in all three.  In the list below "Chronicles HB" means that the title is available in HB but I don't knoe if its the see-through or normal jacket.  HB-A is see-through.  HB-B is regular jacket. And Chronicles PB is,of course, paperback.  The 8888' in the dates is my placeholder for an unknown start or end date.  Some of these could be filled in a bit more by mining the Modern Library web-site at RandomHouse.com. I collect these (actually, I collect every style).

  Darrell

    Has anyone ever discussed the Modern Library Chronicles series? Is there
    anything on Scott's web site?

    I have one in my collection. It is Karen Armstrong's "Islam," is
    copyright 2000 and has a number 2 on the spine. In the book there are
    listed 21 other titles in the Modern Library Chronicles series. It is
    attractively bound with a see through plastic dustjacket with a
    photograph of Muslims praying printed on the boards. The endpapers have a
    torchbearer design.
