Bill Hornick's excellent recent contribution of over 50 items to the
Bindings Projects (Confirmed Bindings for Each Title and Confirmed

Thus Spake Zarathustra -- Nietzsche: 4.5, 6, 9, 12, 13, 14

Best Russian Short Stories: 3, 4.5, 6, 9, 11, 12
Fathers and Sons -- Turgenev: 5, 9, 10, 11, 13
If you know for sure (and can back it up) that any title/binding style
combo DIDN'T exist, it would be helpful to know that as well. (I'll
add a new notation -- a small red "x" -- to the table in the proper
And thanks for playing!!!
