26 posted out of a base of 49 or 53.06% complete for the main volumes.

Some of the future volumes are in very rough states as they are OCRs of compressed images of yellowing aged paper. Have faith, we will finish. There are a still more that almost ready and will be posted soon.

As discussed in another thread, there are also three additional volumes (50 - 52) that contain supplementary material. I have found the images for volume 51 and that will be posted after the base 49 volumes are complete. If anyone has a lead on the other two volumes, please drop me a note and tell me.

To use the old chestnut, "We'll cross that bridge when we come to it."

I have committed to the original set and have made no decision yet about the Shelf of Fiction.
