The price of a ML book was .95 cents (1920-1939)...Can anyone give me the price of a EL charged by Dutton  for the same period?
I do know about the color price codes for the later periods....

"The gilt floral spines and petite dimensions of the
Everyman's Library series ring familiar to anyone who
has frequented used bookstores or explored a dusty
attic. A new exhibit at UNC's Wilson Library will
examine the 102-year history of Everyman's Library,
beginning with those first iconic volumes issued in
1906. 
Joseph Malaby Dent founded Everyman's Library in
London with the goal of publishing 1,000 classic
titles in beautiful and widely affordable editions.
"The ABC of Collecting Everyman's Library: Archives,
Books, Collections," on exhibit January 17 through
March 31, 2008, will showcase 107 historic Everyman's
titles, along with advertising, bookmarks and business
records from the J.M. Dent & Sons archive in Wilson
Library."
