For APA-Goers: A Plea

I probably should have thought of this earlier, since the APA is already in full swing.

If anyone there is reading this, I would very much like to get hold of a set of 20%-off sale catalogues from the various presses. I once paid a graduate student I didn't even know $30 or $40 (I think it was) for a complete set, but even a partial set would help. I'm particularly interested in the catalogues from Cambridge, E. J. Brill, Michigan/Saur, Harvard, Princeton, and Yale. (People tell me that if I rejoin the A.P.A. I can get 30% off on Oxford titles year-round. I plan to do so very soon, so a sale catalogue from them would be superfluous.) There are others I wouldn't mind having, and I'm not at all interested in the purely archaeological publishers. Please e-mail me ( if you can help me out, and specify whether you would rather be lavishly praised on this blog or PayPal'd some spending money (in addition to the postage, of course). In the latter case, lowest bid wins. I'll post an update when and if I have someone lined up.
