I don't have any copies of Aeschylus.  While I think it's an interesting and worthwhile project, I doubt if I'll be participating since my main interest in ML is in selling any nice copies I happen to encounter :-).


Best of luck, Darrell!  I admire what you're trying to do.

I'm asking for Aeschylus jacket dates again.  If you sent earlier, please drop a quick note.  If you haven't got any aeschylus copies, please indicate.  If you aren't intrested in the project, drop a line.  When I have some type of response from most of the people who seem to be "hard core" contributors I willl move on to the next author/title. 


Author: Aeschyus 

Title: Aeschyus I and II 

Link to the jacket photos on Scot’s site: http://modernlib.com/authors/aAuthors/aeschylusJackets.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 b
elongs 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):

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:
