MLer's,
 
I'm starting over with the jacket dating project. One author/one title at a time; for now
 
Author: Adams, Henry 
Title: The Education of Henry Adams 
Link to the jacket photos on Scot’s site: http://modernlib.com/authors/aAuthors/adamsJackets.html 
Refer to jacket by that date that is currently attached to the photo.
  
  
REQUIRED INFORMATION: 1) Your name; 2) Jacket date; 3) Binding type of book as long as you beleive the jacket belongs on that book; 4) indication of at least one method of dating the jacket (the more, the better, and don’t worry about inconsistencies because the various methods don’t always give the same date. Only use option (D) (listed below) as the primary method of dating if (A), (B) and (C) (listed below) are not available). 
 
OPTIONAL INFORMATION:  i) Original price on jacket; ii) Any additional items listed under (A), (B), (C) and (D) that you did not used as primary dating method.
 
 
Response Form (type in information after the colons and e-mail back):
 
1) Your name: 
 
2) Jacket Date (Year and Season):

3) Binding style of the book (as long as it isn't a mis-match): 
  
            
4) Dated by:     A) # of titles mentioned in jacket: 
                        B) Regular list in jacket (year/season) by: 
                                    i) Title included: 
                                    ii) Title excluded: 
                        C) Giant list in jacket (year/season) by: 
                                    i) Title included: 
                                    ii) Title excluded: 
  
If you have the jacket dated by (A), (B), (C) or any combination of any or all of them, then items under (D) are optional information that I, Darrell Johnson, would appreciate.  If you can’t date the jacket by (A), (B), or (C), then you must use something from (D) (e.g. late 60's books have no jacket lists - they must be dated by inference: 
  
4 cont.)            D) By inference from the book it is on:                          
i) Regular list in book: 
                                                a) Title included: 
                                                b) Title excluded: 
                                    ii) Giant list in book: 
                                                a) Title included: 
                                                b) Title excluded: 
                                    iii) C-list in an early leatherette link: 
iv) “X years ago …” ad in the back of early leatherettes. Number of years ago: 
                                    v) Statements of: FMLeD; First Printing; etc… : 
                                    vi) Other: 
 
Optional Information:  Original Price on jacket: 
 
 
If you have sent info on Adams earlier, you do not need to respond to this request - your information is already catalogued.
 
We'll do another in a few days or so.
 
Darrell
