POD only for the new HoME? Oh dear. This means it's likely I'll never be able to justify the cost of the set. I'd planned on being able to shop around for discounted prices, but at £40 a pop...it's a bit much, really.

Wow! I'm a bit embarrassed, really. Thanks to everyone for the votes of confidence, but I was just as impressed with all the stories I read from everyone else. I'm really pleased that we all get to give the tea a try!

I, for one, will be merrily sipping the tea, and I'll be sure to let you all know what the Mrs and I think!

Thanks very much to Jeremy, too, for the opportunity and awesome prizes!

Yes, I guess - though I don't know what they're fetching these days.

Thanks very much for your help. Im guessing ebay is the best place to sell this?

Yes, I was going to mention the price. My 1971 reprint cost 30p, that is, 30 new pence (the UK went decimal in 1970). 3s is short for three shillings; 30p was the equivalent of six shillings.

Let's see; according to my copy of Peter Sutcliffe's 'The Oxford University Press: An Informal History (Oxford, 1978), John Johnson was Printer to the University from 1925-1946, which I guess makes yours a first printing. Unless anyone can come up with an objection.
