Dear List Members, Around this time last year the Society was pleased to have a sudden and welcome spike in sales. It happens that a further bout of retiring Classics teachers has allowed us to put together another brief list. Items marked with an asterisk are in the list, and those marked with a further asterisk are for sale. As before, please could those members with questions, orders or desiderata (always welcome) do so off-list.
