Best wishes to those who wish to own the real thing; as for the
monetarily challenged on the list, I can recommend the Edward Hamilton
catalog (they have a web page too), which offers the recently reissued
Norton for all of $100. Not exactly cheap, but compare it to a whole
shelf-full of Folger editions, and it starts to look reasonable.
The Hamilton catalog is a real find for bibliophiles, very dangerous for
those on a budget like yours truly. Their address is:
Falls Village CT 06031-5000
They also ship quickly, another real virtue.
Best wishes, and on a more somber note, here's hoping Frank Muir finds
an equally appreciative audience for his wonderful shaggy-dog stories in
the next life. His humor was a most welcome part of my Sundays here.
"My Word" won't be the same without him.
