About meThese shrivelled sinews and this bending frame,
The workmanship of TIME's strong hand proclaim...
- Krates, brother of the less famous Epilycus (fl.5th century)
as a great American poet puts it,
"I'm an old truck up on cinder blocks, missing all my wheels."

About my libraryThere was a meandering description here and then I suddenly looked at it and thought - who gives a f@%# and deleted it.

Thanks for pointing that out, featherwate. I have added it to my basket, however GT is one of those HP books I was hoping to get for a bargain so I will probably hold out for one.
thanks for the compliments. The ebb endpapers are are a Cockerell paper available from Talas in Brooklyn, NY. i buy directly from Talas and have materials, bookcloth and papers, shipped to my binder.Rebindings coming up are 1929 Barom Munchausen, Walden with Steichen photos, and 1940 The Wind in the Willows.
Thanks! I just updated the Dropbox folder name for Candide.
Wow, that's a heap of info there! I'll definitely update my post with that today. I've got more than a few I need to do! Thanks! :)
I looked closely (with a magnifying glass!) at the LEC and Easton of Pride and Prejudice: There are noticeable differences in the sharpness of the illustrations, and in the quality of the paper. I guess you will probably find the same difference between LEC and HP.
Thank you for the comment about finding Folios in Toronto! Much appreciated. I have heard from someone else that BMV Books in Toronto also carries used Folios.
I didn't know that marbling the edges was such an Herculean task! Thanks for that information. It makes the Dictionary still more precious to my eyes.
Hi, featherwate. I'm sorry I haven't gotten back to you sooner. I haven't actually read the Montaigne essays collection that I have, but I've skimmed through it, and the translation seems very readable to me. Of course, I have no idea if it's a *good* translation, since I'm not fluent in French, but it's highly readable. Very lucid style.

Unfortunately, I only have one volume of the essays. The second volume that I have is a handbook, or guide, to the essays, and I don't have the actual second volume of the essays themselves. If you know anywhere I could get it, that would be wonderful.

I hope this helps answer your question!
