    1. Hi Karyn

      Your list looks very like mine in that I have 94 of the first 100 but only 19 of the second 100 Classics. I wonder why that is? Were the second hundred published in smaller numbers? All of mine are first Penguin editions and I much prefer the initial design with the roundel logos and the colour coding for language, to the later black design, elegant though it is.
      Best Chris
