Dick G. "It looks like we'll be able to have them printed in the UK, too---avoiding those godawful carriage costs."

That's terrific news Dick. Well, the whole project is. But the carriage cost is the big pain in the ass as far as ordering anything of that size from the States is concerned. Any idea when they'll be available over here?

BTW. A salutary tale. Liverpool Central Library reference section once had a complete set. Some years ago, I needed to check same. The librarian had no idea what it was I was after, and no record of anything by anyone called Bertrand Bronson. The best guess I can make is that they were sold in one of the many sales by which Liverpool decimated its priceless book collection. Probably bought by a dealer for around 5-00 per volume. Probably sold on by same dealer for 20+ times what he paid for them. TLF.
