Well, all I say is that an ML is an ML.? there are paperbacks, from the 50's, as well as the 90's and 2000s.? I don't really care for the pb but there is an separate genre of literature in the pb that is not availble in the hardbound.

Don,      You have 1013 volumes!  Even counting in all the post 1970 volumes, I  only can see about 830 titles in the series.  Unless you count the  paperbacks that were never published in the hardback series? Is that it?    VERY impressed,  Toby (who has a mere 633 but has no paperbacks)    > Date: Sat, 15 Sep 2007 09:01:53 -0400  > From: pecksgrove at aol.com  > Subject: Re: [ModLib] Modern Library Chronicles  > To: modlib at owu.edu  > Message-ID: <8C9C5AFB8CB350F-620-37AB at webmail-mf09.sysops.aol.com>  > Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"  >   > Darrel  > Over the years, I have gone to many places to find ml books for my   > collection.?
