It turned out to be published by the Modern Library (red dust jacket, 1960s).  I was impressed by the quality of the book.  There was also a certain quaintness I still can not put my finger on.   I bought other Modern Library books as they turned up at Odyssey, and it just kind of snowballed.  My collection is small, so have not been able to contribute to the 10 minute challenges of late. 
> Now for the question.  I do have a number of titles that need Mylar, and wonder what the real collectors prefer.  Does one use polypropylene, polyester, or specifically Mylar?  A search for Mylar will return all three.  What thickness is preferable- 1.5, 2, or 2.5 mil?  Is paperbacking better to protect the dust jackets?  I have checked Demco, Brodart, and Gaylord, but am not sure what to get.  Any advice would be much appreciated.
