      Gary and I agree for once.

      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.
