Many thanks, Barry. I thought I had them all, but since a collector challenged my assumption I thought it best to check it out.

The last titles to appear in slipcases were the two Shakespearre volumes in 1944.  Previous Illustrated ML titles that were reprinted in 1946 also had clear acetate jackets.  Lettering on the acetate jackets was silkscreened.  Later acetate jackets had pasted-on paper labels to reduce costs.
