Christmas book haul

Because I maintain a childlike materialism for books here are my new acquisitions, in no coherent order:

Paul Metcalf’s collected works, volume 1

New German edition of Musil, volume 2

Antal Szerb’s The Queen’s Necklace

Antal Szerb’s The Third Tower

Red Pine’s translation of Stonehouse

Sankara’s Upadesasahasri, 2 volumes

The new annotated edition of T.S. Eliot’s poetry, volume 1

Monaldo Leopardi’s Autobiografia – which no library anywhere was willing to loan me

Robert Merton’s On The Shoulders of Giants (OTSOG)

Poggio Bracciolini’s Epistulae – volumes 3 and 4 of the Bottega d’Erasmo facsimile edition of his works. I can’t find the first two to purchase and am amazed these came up anywhere.

Library of America complete works of W.S. Merwin, 2 volumes

Stanislaw Lem’s Mortal Engines

Thomas Nashe’s The Unfortunate Traveller and Other Works 

Charles Lamb’s Selected Prose

Dumbarton Oaks Medieval Library edition of Carmina Burana, volume 1

I Tatti edition of Angelo Poliziano’s Letters, volume 1 (and I fear there will be no completing volume released)

Keiichi Tahara’s 30 pound Taschen Architecture Fin-de-Siècle, 3 volumes

Pleiade edition of Maupassant’s Contes et Nouvelles, 2 volumes

Marcel Conche’s PUF edition of Heraclitus
