Scope and content

Cambridge University Press, Bentley House, 200 Euston Road, London N.W.1. - Mr Kingsford sent on the letter from Trevelyan [see 21/80] about the Lucretius translation; the Press is attempting to get some copies bound. The 'prohibitive price' for the small quantity justified by the sales has been the problem, but thinks 'conditions may now be a little easier' and hopes to have copies available before long. The translation of Leopardi is however entirely out of print, with no copies in sheet form.
