Default perfection learning pern books?

Dear everybody,

On my quest to McCaffrey books I discovered that perfection learning has published library bindings of Dragonflight, Dragonquest and The White Dragon. (And maybe more?)

Has anyone ever seen these books? Does their library binding differ from hardcover? And who does the cover art for these books?

Their website refuses to admit to anything by Anne.

As far as I know those library bindings mean a paperback bound as a hardcover (at least in The Netherlands). I think they call them turtlebacks in the USA.

The books will be the same as the regular ones.

What I do have seen, and I even have one or two, are special (library) big letter editions (in English).

The library in the town where I used to live had some of those hardback paperbacks but I don't know if they still do. I think they may have had Crystal Singer as well.
