In the period 1929 - 1939,  Toledano B style DJs (the ones with the  
big ML logo on the front panel) seemed quite prevalent. Books that  
didn't have pictorial DJs tended to have this style.  (I'd say all,  
but every time I do that I get proven wrong.)

Many times several different colored B styled DJs  -- blue, green,  
red, maybe others -- were issued for the same title evidently at or at  
least close to the same time.  The dating doesn't seem to have much  
significance. Thus I don't bother showing them  -- except on occasion  
for aesthetic purposes.

If somebody could demonstrate that these have a real collector  
significance, I'd be glad to conserve the images and demonstrate them  
on ModernLib.
