John,
   
  Is the list in it the same as the one labeled List 21 = List D?  This came out of Two copies of Solzhenitsyn's Caner Ward and is the list that adds Doctorow.  The price should be $8.95 if its a first printing.  If it is we'll see if Doctorow introduces his own first appearance list.  If it isn't, then it should correspond tho the list labelled List 24 = List E.  And if its even later, its should correspond to List 23 = List F, which is the last one made.
   
  Thanks,
   
  Darrell

  I have a jacketed Book of Daniel, by Doctorow, September, '83.  What do you want to know?

  Modern Librarians,
   
  Over the last two days I have analyzed the 33 jackets lists that I have in my 80’s faux collection. I hadn’t done this before because I knew I didn’t have a very large number of jacket lists and I therefore didn’t think it would be very useful to attempt  an analysis yet.  But I only found 6 different lists over a likely 2 – 2 ½ year period and I got some fairly useful results.  It basically allowed me to produce a Jacket List Dating Guide.
   
  In Chronological Order:
   
  List A: 1982 (perhaps late)
              ID’s: Has Mitford, Love etc (1982).
   
   Missing Miller; Tropic of Cancer (May 1983)
   
  Dates: Nothing – there are no other undated titles not included in the previous list because there is no previous list.
   
  List B: May 1983
  ID’s: Has Miller, Tropic of Cancer (May 1983).
   
  Missing: Malraux, Man’s Hope (Sept. 1983) and Solzhenitsyn, Cancer Ward (Sept. 1983); Kosinski, Steps (Sept. 1983).
   
  Dates: Conrad, Nostromo; James, Portrait of a Lady; Kosinski, Painted Bird; and Dostoyevsky, The Idiot, by their introductions into the list.
   
  List C: Sept. 1983:
  ID’s: Includes Malraux, Man’s Hope and Solzhenitsyn, Cancer Ward, 
  Kosinski, Steps (all Sept. 1983).
   
  Missing: Dotorow, Book of Daniel (Sept. 1983)
   
  Dates: Borge , Labyrinths; Dinesen,  Out of Africa; Gide, Immoralist; Chopin, The Awakening, by their introductions into the list.
   
  List D: ?Later that Sept. 1983 but in 1983, or Early 1984? 
              ID’s Contains: Doctorow, Book of Daniel (Sept. 1983)
   
  Missing: Yourcenar, Memoirs of Hadrian (March 1984), Bowen, Death of the Heart (1984); Cather, Death Comes etc. (1984).
   
  Dates: Nothing – there are no other undated titles not included in the previous list.
   
   
  List E: 1984 (probably early):
  ID’s:  Includes Yourcenar, Memoirs of Hadrian (March 1984), 
              Bowen, Death of the Heart (1984); Cather, Death Comes etc. (1984).
   
  Missing Faulkner, Wild Palms (1984); Goethe, Sorrows etc. (1984); Shelley, Frankenstein (March 1984).
  .
  Dates: Nothing – there are no other undated titles not included in the previous list.
   
  List F: 1984 (probably late, but maybe 1985): 
  ID’s: Includes Faulkner, Wild Palms (1984); Goethe, Sorrows etc. (1984); 
  Shelley, Frankenstein (March 1984).
   
              Missing: Balzac, Lost Illusions  (1985); Cellini, Autobiography (Nov. 1985); 
              Defoe, Moll Flanders (Nov. 1985); Voltaire, Candide etc. (Second ML Edition
  1984).
   
  Dates (approximately): Stendahl, Red and Black; Byron, Don Juan, by their introduction into the list.
   
  An observation: 
   
  Nothing stated as published in 1985 shows up in any list!  This suggests that there was no list update done in 1985 at all (even though there are two Nov. 1985 stated titles: Defoe and Cellini!), and the last list update was likely late in 1984 (or maybe early 1985 but not including any 1985’s).
   
  Some other thoughts and conclusions:
   
  Henry’s guide says the earliest Faux’s were in 1977 and the series was “jazzed up” in 1980 with the woodcut jackets and lists.  Every woodcut jacket I have has a list.  No regular jacket that I have has a list.  The lists and the woodcuts clearly seem to be simultaneous introductions as Henry states.  And the analysis shows that the earliest of these lists references the introduction of Mitford’s Love in a Cold Climate and Pursuit of Love.  Henry’s guide puts this title in 1980.  But the book itself states 1982.  There are no other new titles with 1980, 1981 or 1982 statements in them.  It seems to follow from all this that Mitford was the first new title brought in.  It was brought in with the introduction of the new binding and the woodcut jackets and the inclusion of title lists.  And this happened late in 1982.  This was followed by other new titles with new lists in May 1983, September 1983, either very late 1983 or very early 1984, early 1984 and either late 1984 or
 early 1985.  New titles were added in (or later in) 1985 – perhaps as late as November – but no new lists were made including these newer titles.
   
  Any thoughts?
   
  If anyone wants the Access table with the jacket lists to analyse the information, send me an email and I’ll send it to you.   It wouldn’t hurt to have someone else double check the analysis of the table (even though won’t doesn’t allow of double checking the data input into the table.)
   
  A bit of Help:
   
  Doctorow seems to be an important point since he seems to have a new list simply to add his title to the list.  Ironically, the only 80’s faux I own without a jacket is Doctorow.  Does anyone have a jacketed Doctorow?  I would like to confer with you about the list in that jacket.
