V-135 is the number in Vintage Books for Capote's Other Voices, Other Rooms. I suspect that only selected titles in Vintage Books (Random House's quality paperback series) were available in buckram bindings. The buckram bindings were intended primarily for sale to libraries.

Hi, 

This may be somewhat off topic, but someone here may know. I recently picked up a Random House, Vintage Books edition, in a buckram binding which is almost identical to that used for the Modern Library. Here’s a photo of the book, with a Modern Library buckram for comparison: https://docs.google.com/leaf?id=0B4HE6nGKR3uPNGZkM2JjZmItYmYzNy00MDc5LTlkMDAtZWU4MTk0NjJiZWVk&hl=en 

Is there any information available about this series and its buckram bindings? Google comes up with very little - only an Abe Books listing for a different title. 

My immediate questions are: 

-- How many different buckram bound titles are there in this series (my copy has V-135 on the spine)? 

-- Is there any sort of reference or guide for this series? 

Thanks. 

Eric Hanson
