Bunker Hill:
For the wealthy check this out, due for publication next month:

Or recommend that a library invests in it.

Rivers:
Interesting, and I sincerely hope it does the subject area justice. Given that Dixon Godrich & Rye can fill a whole thick volume covering only one subject area in depth I wonder if two volumes can catch all the rest. I look forward to getting my hands on this. Or maybe I should wait til the 2nd edition, after the ensuing arguments on PWB have subsided!

Bunker, do you know who the contributers and editors are?

Just click 'Contributors' in the left hand frame where there are also, A-Z list of entries, sample entries etc.

Rivers:
Doh, sorry, I missed that. Looks good. Wish it stopped at 19-forty something though. Discussion of some (a lot actually) of what came after, interleaved with the golden age, I know I will find jarring.

You and me both, you and me both. But then it will appeal even less to a library market. Everybody would have heard of the Rolling Stones or Cream so I guess their inclusion, however inappropriate I personally might think they be, are probably mandatory to get the damned thing sold/distributed.
