You mean this one:  http://makingmaps.owu.edu/modernlibrary/gg/gats.html

That was the "greatest".

     Wow! Congratulations—great finds, indeed!  But they pale in
comparison  to the Gatsby you found in a #8 binding a few years ago.

  Hi all,
  
 It is not often that one finds ML leatherette in jackets in a bookstore
-  found two yesterday
 (Zuleika @$9 and Camille @$12 - Spring ’28 list) along with Snow’s Red
Star  Over China ($9). 
 The Snow has 316 titles (not a first). I also have a Snow with 322
titles  (so there were at least
 three printings of this title).
  
  Also, recently bought a copy of Little Women from ABE: $40 (which is
as  cheap as I have ever 
 seen one). See the attached photo.

  
 Earlier in the week, at Half-Price-Books, a Giant buckram, Studs
Lonigan,  in VG condition ($7)
 along with a half dozen nice #8 bindings in jackets, all titles missing
 from my collection, for 
 $5 each.
  
 The Beerbohm Zuleika Dobson (in image) has a jacket with a fall 1927
list.  Thus Scot can update 
 the Beerbohm jackets page (currently this jacket is listed as 1926).
