I would heartily support the publication of Swanson's work in a
hardbound format. It is extremely accurate and has continually proven
useful in my own studies. My only concern is whether in so doing we will
lose the extreme savings (especially for students) of the William Carey
Library paperback edition. I would hope that Baker would also continue an
inexpensive paperback version along with the hardback reference format if
so. (Is William Carey Library and/or Sheffield Academic Press choosing to
drop Swanson altogether?).

Quite correct, from my own examination of selected portions.
