[ModLib] ML Special Printings

I bought a copy of the special printing of Red Lily on Ebay a few years ago for $15.00.  It was clearly described as the special printing, but mine was the only bid.  To my dismay, scarce doesn't always mean valuable.

  Subject: [ModLib] ML Special Printings

  In the early 1920s, ML produced "Special Printings" for The Jewish Daily Forward.  The Ml website lists three titles: Butler's The Way of All Flesh, Flaubert's Madame Bovary and France's The Red Lily.  I have the latter two and both are spine #3.  Does anyone know of any other titles?

  The ML website refers to these items as "scarce" but offers no valuation.  Similarly, Mr. Toledano's Guide does not offer prices or even list these printings.

  Can anyone suggest prices on VG copies, with and without dust jackets?  Input from collectors who are also dealers would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you all for your help.
