Thread Name: Dover has republished Child
Subject: RE: Dover has republished Childs
Dover, in trying to jump on a bandwagon not of their making, has probably missed it; serve them right, frankly. If they had reprinted ten years ago, we could all have avoided the bizarre prices charged in recent years by greedy dealers. I allow myself a certain satisfaction here, having got my (1965) Dover set for less than they are charging for the new impression; but not everyone has been that lucky, or dealt with people as honest as I was able to.

I agree entirely with Joe. Go for the Loomis House set, which is far better value; but buy now. We need to be sure that they make enough of a return on the first two volumes to publish the rest.
