Modern Library - questions...

Post by By the Boo » Mon, 27 Apr 1998 04:00:00



Hi all!

I'm debating whether to start picking up Modern Library titles when I come
across them. I'm interested in any references you might have come across
that would indicate points for first ML edition, dating 'em, scarcity,
etc., or that you collectors have found helpful.

I also seem to recall that one of the rcb founders (Scott?) has a website
devoted to ML.... And I confess, I didn't bookmark it when I was there some
months ago. If someone would list that address, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks to all!

http://www.dogeared.com/ has all the info you need. :-)

The one existing nearly accurate guide is Henry Toledano's "Modern Library
Price Guide" which is reviewed at my web site. The guide is great for first
edition stuff.  (Of course, price guides as price guides are out of date
the second they come off the press.)

And I'm MORE than happy to answer any general ML questions here on RCB.
