Most collectors seem to collect with dust jacekts. But I have heard from many collectors over the years who collect by binding style. Thus the ModernLib website is rich in resources for both kinds of collectors.
I heard recently (yesterday I think) from a woman who collects only books from 1950 -- and thus is a specialized binding 8 collector. Of course, she needs to pay special attention to the back-of-book catalogs to make sure of her dates; I don't know how she manages for books without catalogs or DJs!

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.
