Just wanted to let folks know that this weekend I picked up the first volume of
the Random House Dictionary of American Slang for $16, brand-new, from the
Strand at Broadway and 12th St. here in Manhattan. Considering that volume two
sells there for $60, I think this is a bargain.

There were a bunch more copies of volume one, if you're interested. Call them at
212 473 1452 for more information.

I also, finally, found the 1977 printing of Mencken's American Language with the
two supplemental volumes, as a set for $30. It was a big weekend.
