the best of the world’s classics: in ten volumes, by henry cabot-lodge, 1909.
i found nine of the set at a used book shop last summer, but left them on the shelf, because of the missing volume. later, as i was leaving, i spied the tenth book on a table by the exit! i grabbed it, ran back to the classics room (this was a large, shop), all the while repeating, please still be there, please still be there.
they were, i was thrilled, & i love them so.
