Thanks, Pete. Curiouser and curiouser. I'm starting to think the
distribution of his works is more complex than Eliot's poetry. I saw an
offer for all eight volumes of the letters on Kindle for £221.00. Can't
be many takers for reading thousands and thousands of letters on a
screen, can there? I wonder what the collected prose will go for when
all eight of those volumes are put into print. Much more than £221 I'm
guessing. So it goes.

It was despatched on 15 January with London imprint but then so had the earlier US purchased ones I guess in Australia the global brute supplies from where it likes. The convenience of modern life huh.

I pre-ordered it on Amazon a back and received a notice a couple days ago stating the order is canceled because the print edition will not be available. Instead, only the Kindle edition is offered. I know the print edition is still on the UK site, but it won't accept the gift card used for the pre-order. Just wondering at what seems an odd turn of events...
