Index to Authors

The format of this index is authorName ( title count / DJ count ). So Henry Fielding (2/8) means that the Henry Fielding page has two titles for a combined total of eight dust jacket images in all ML editions — regular, giant, illustrated, and numbered paperback.

Also see the Index to Untomed Authors for a list of authors whose work appears in a Modern Library anthology but who have no volumes of their own in the series.

About the DJ Dates on the Author Page: A single date without any other qualifying text above a dust jacket (for example 1937) refers to the earliest reported copy—it doesn't mean that the jacket image shown is a first printing dust jacket. A date range above a dust jacket (for example 1926 - 1929) refers to the starting and ending years it is believed that DJ was in use—that is, the preponderance of evidence suggests that these dates are quite reliable. It could be that earlier or later instances of a dust jacket exists—if you have a dust jacket in that style that falls outside the listed range, please report it!
