I have "The Caine Mutiny" Herman Wouk and "The Celebrated Jumping Frog and Other Stories" by Mark Twain.  These books are new looking hardbacks that didn't come with dust covers.  They have gold color lettering on the cover.  They are also  unabridged Reader's Digest versions, and they are posted on my shelf.  The Caine Mutiny has a picture of exactly what the books like.  Although the Mark Twain book didn't come up showing a picture, it is similar in style.




There is a smoker in my home but it is pet free.
