Ron,

I'm not familiar with the book club edition of Middlemarch. My copy is the regular ML edition with a $10.95 list price.  I'd be interested in learning more about it!

Hi Barry,

What would have caused the addition of the BOMC statement (and the change
of the jacket) on the Middlemarch woodcut?


thanks,
ron
