Comments on the Collection

I have been collecting books for most of my adult life, but didn't start focusing on ML until about five years ago. I thoroughly enjoy the hunt and am now educating myself on Everyman's, which I have recently begun collecting. Probably half of my MLs are 1st editions and I am always looking to upgrade the collection. I recently changed my focus to flex covers with pictorial DJs from the 30s. My collection was getting too large so I sell #8 and later bindings as I replace with flex copies. I think they are the most beautiful in the entire series. I am especially covetous of the gift sets and would appreciate anyone contacting me with information on obtaining them.
