[ModLib] BOOK CLUB EDITIONS AND ML

I'm not aware of any ML books as such that were selections of a book club. For modern copyrighted works the idea is absurd. The original publisher granted the ML the right to reprint a cheaper edition, and it would be the original publisher who authorized any book club edition. There were probably ML titles that were also selections of book clubs, but the ML would not have been involved in any way and any book club editions would have looked like the original publisher's edition, not the ML reprint.

Maybe that seller thinks that The Modern Library IS a Book Club. Something similar to Readers Digest.
