->Shameless Plug: I still have these two very sought-after DLEs for trade
History of the Crusades -- 2 Volumes -- Dore DLE -- Limited to 600 copies
Ovid's Metamorphosis -- 2 Volumes -- Second Volume sealed -- Limited to 400 copies
That said, I recently purchased a used copy of The Guns of August by Barbara W. Tuchman.
It's an important book as well as a wonderful read.
The EP edition is arguably the finest edition of this classic work (note that the Franklin Library edition is also wonderful) AND it is insanely inexpensive! You should be able to find a used NF/F copy for around $50. It's part of EP's Military History series, and I can not recommend it enough :)
Library of America has done a volume that contains “The Guns of August” combined with “The Proud Tower” about the events leading up to World War I.
I don’t buy many EPs now either, largely because I’ve read most of the classics I care to read, although I still have my collection of them. Today I concentrate more on the “forgotten” classics, those out of print or in translation for the first time, as exemplified especially by the New York Review of Books series of paperbacks.
Do you have the Landmark Herodotus or Thucydides?
The two DLEs I currently have for trade are: (I'm using Easton's images here)
History of the Crusades -- 2 Volumes
Ovid's Metamorphosis -- 2 Volumes
They're both huge!
They're both very hard to find as well.
