Can someone point me in the direction of where to purchase larger
quantities of clear material for dust jacket covers?  I am a collector,
not a dealer, but I still have several hundred books that I would like
to make covers for and the pre-manufactured ones available at bookstores
are cost prohibitive for this many books.

Gaylord, Brodart and others ship overseas.
They offer discounts on larger quantities.
For that many books, I'd buy the stuff that comes on a roll.
BTW - the Brodart site (www.brodart.com) has a "bargain bin" where they sell
off discontinued stock. You may be able to pick up a bargain there.

Search the net or call your local library.  The ones I usually use are called
'Brodarts", and your library reference should be able to point you to them,
then get their catalogue.

I'd like to thank everybody for the responses I received on dust
jackets.  I was able to order a bunch and for considerably cheaper than
I had originally thought.

I have another question.  I grew up with Bobbsey Twins and Nancy Drew.
I have alot of info on the twins, but can't seem to find out if all the
series (1st editions) had dust jackets.  Can anybody give me direction
here?

David,  In Canada there is a library supply company that has all kinds
of valuable products
for the book collector, like myself. I'm sure they have a Brodart
Library Supply store
in the States. I believe it is in the east. Try asking your local
library where they
purchase their book jackets.   Good hunting, Alan.

The series you mention were published by Grosset & Dunlap.  For the
most part, Grosset & Dunlap series were published in a nylon pictorial
cover format beginning in 1962.  Thus, pre-1961 titles would have been
issued with dust jackets.  For Nancy Drew, this would be volumes 1-38
(1930-1961) and for the Bobbsey Twins, volumes 1-55 (1904-1962).

I am not sure which of several conflicting definitions you are using
when you mention "1st editions" but I should warn you that simply
looking at the copyright message is not an indication of the printing
date for your particular copy.  The best way to approach this is to
become something of a detective yourself.  Look at the list of Nancy
Drew or Bobbsey Twins titles advertised on the dust jacket.  The year
of publication of the last title listed is the approximate printing
date for your book.  For Nancy Drew there is a detailed bibliography,
FARAH'S GUIDE, which covers this in minute detail once you learn the
meanings of the codes and abbreviations.

We prefer the Demco SuperFold variety of DJ protector which is sealed
along one edge and comes in rolls.  It is a thicker Mylar (archive
grade plastic) than other brands, is clear, and doesn't stick to itself
as other brands do.  We do not like the center-split variety which is
sealed on both edges.  The added thicknes causes a crease on the DJ
over long periods (5+ years) of time.
