Another example is regular ML printings of Green Mansions from Illustrated ML plates with E. McKnight Kauffer's line drawings at the head of each chapter. The earliest example I've seen has a spring 1946 list at the end of the volume. I believe Kauffer's name was added to the title page in 1949.

Just received a nice note from ML collector Drew Asson. He says in part: 


I have an illustrated ML edition that I couldn't find listed on your site. Your site lists the regular edition but not in its illustrated version. I do not have a dust jacket. The information is: 

    * Tortilla Flat by John Steinbeck (#216) 
    * Binding #14, dark blue color 
    * Endpaper design by Sadamitsu Neil Fujita, green color 
    * Illustrated by Ruth Gannett 


(The illustrations appear in all Tortilla Flat printings as far as I can tell.) This brings up a great topic for a new ML article -- ML titles that had illustrations in them but that were NOT part of the ML series of illustrated editions! 

How about sending me other titles with illustrations that were not part of the formal illustrated editions ( http://www.modernlib.com/Identifiers/IllustratedNotes.html and http://www.modernlib.com/Identifiers/illustrated.html )including the name of the illustrator if known and I'll whip up a new article for the website? 

Thanks all,
