Subject:        Price Check -- First Folio

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:

Edward Hamilton
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.
