College Edition Issues (1950 - 1985)

The Modern Library College Edition (MLCE) series began in 1950. This series, the first entry into the paperback format for the Modern Library, was designed for (obviously) the college market, providing lower cost publications of the classic titles used in university curricula. The titles were each assigned a unique number by the Modern Library and given the "T" prefix. Starting in 1981 the T number was dropped and the ISBN was used for identification. T104 was the last number assigned. We’ve assigned new numbers for titles issued after T104, or we use the same number as previously assigned for titles released in updated editions: For example, we’ve assigned T040.2 to the later release of Whitman's Leaves of Grass and Selected Prose. Numbers assigned in this way are indicated with italics.

Up until the later 1960s the MLCE titles issued were the same as those available in the regular ML. Then new titles started showing up such as Marvell's Complete Poetry, although some 'new' titles were just subsets of what was in the regular ML (such as Austen's Pride and Prejudice by itself).

In the mid to late 1980s McGraw-Hill acquired the MLCE from Random House.  It is not believed that any new titles were issued by McGraw-Hill.

The arrival of the MLCE had an impact on the regular ML. Many regular titles received updates when that title was released in MLCE (like new introductions or an updated bibliography). You will see quite a few regular MLs get new Toledano numbers at that time (like 110.3).

In the table below, click a title to go to the author page and see its front cover(s). The third column is the Toledano number. Data can be sorted by Title, Author, or Toledano # by clicking on the column name. Information on the MLCE cover formats are available here.
