As for those jackets you've got in storage, I'd get them out and wrap them in archival mylar (Brodart) dust jacket covers. The DJs are much more artistic and colorful than the books themselves and add a lot to the enjoyment of the ML panoply.

>> A question from a novice;  do most ML collectors only collect volumes with Dust Jackets?  I ask because I actually started picking up the books because 1. I liked the individual book/subject matter and 2. I liked having spines that all matched.  (I prefer the Toledano #8 bindings) and I actually removed the dj's (kept neatly in a acid free box) when I file the books on my shelves.
