I've already renewed my subscription and have ordered /Justine/ (with a 
free set of Graves' /Greek Myths/ and a very cheap set of Gibbons). 
Once it arrives, we'll see if I can use the next 3 volumes as my books 
for this year...  If not, Greene looks very appealing.

Folio tends to produce material that it sees as commercially viable to a 
particular class of buyers, and including Durrell there is a boon.  They 
may not be scholarly editions, but they're the first step toward them, 
and it speaks to a continuing readership.  I wonder if Porter has 
written an introduction to each volume.

Now, let's see who gets a copy first!  Bill, will you tell us how it 
looks and what edition they've used when yours comes in?

Best,
Jamie
