Greetings all and many thanks for all the responses. The bottom line for
me, as a bookstore owner, is that the volume is not particularly
collectible. I looked it up on abebooks and could only find one listing for
an MLCE edition, which was going for a fairly high price (can't remember
off hand what it was), so I wondered.

As an fyi for anyone who might want to know, this copy is in the original
style ("Ta" as per the link Ron provided), with a copyright date of 1950
(which I know doesn't tell me when this edition was printed necessarily).
Also on the copyright page is the sentence, "The material included in this
volume is taken from Temple Classics." On the back of the book is a short
description of the MLCE series ending with, "Included are works by:"
followed by a list of 64 authors.

If it of use to anyone, I'd be happy to scan and send a .jpg of the cover.
Just let me know.
