There are several books I wish were included in the Modern Library series. So, time for a little game. Name the book(s) you wish were published in an ML edition. First a couple rules.

1. Book must be published before 1970 (when the classic series was in print)
2. Book must fit within the scope of ML. For instance, I wish they did an 11th Ed. Brittanica, but it would run to over 20 vols. even in the Giant format, so that's out.
3. Bonus points if it would be in the public domain at the time of publishing (as Cerf and Klopfer preferred this).

My first submission:
Frankenstein by Mary Shelley.
