Hi Mike,

You are so logical.  Thank you!  That makes total sense.  Forget what I said
unless it works.

I like Roger's idea to do a search on Amazon and see how each is described.
Actually, I think cloth refers to hardcover and paper refers to paperback.
In the dimness of time the cardboard covers of hardcover books were coated
with cloth to help them last longer (and before that it was leather).
Paper, I think is short for paperback.  I've seen books with both ISBNs and
haven't a clue why the publishers would do it that way.
