It's an amazing collection. Unfortunately, it's the same old story for me: no cash! Looks like she's selling the Selected Letters at a very fair price.

I would dearly love to get my hands on the two-volume edition of the Commonplace Book by David E. Schultz, as I've been attempting to track a set down for years, and it is something which would help me in my researches tremendously. But, as with The English Assassin, finances simply won't permit it, even at such a reasonable price....

I realize now that you are probably looking for David E. Schultz's critical editorial.

Thank you for the link; but, as you surmise, I am looking for the critical edition Schultz produced. I understand a new edition has been bruited about for a while, but it doesn't look likely for a long time to come....

Yes, I have Miscellaneous Writings, which is indeed a very interesting book. I also have the HP 5-volume Collected Essays, which has proved invaluable.

It's unfortunately quite scarce nowadays -- I finally found decently priced copies of both vols a year or two ago; I think I paid $50 or so for each, so the asking price here seems to be about right.
I've urged Schultz to prepare an updated Hippocampus edition of CB, but with so many projects, alas, I don't think it's something that he can get around to very soon....

Some of the other prices are fair, but on the other hand, some seem quite high to me. E.g. I'm pretty sure no one is gonna pay 125 € for "Sunset Terrace Imagery" (I got it for about 10% of that not that many years ago). Hint to the seller...

Yes, that's what I rather thought was the case. Well, I'll keep trying when I have the cash, as well as attempting to get my hands on a copy through ILL (this thing seems to be harder to get through that route than Ransome's Elixir of Life was some years ago!).

And, of course, I'll hope that we will see both this and the critical edition of the Fungi at some point in the not-too-distant future.....
