    Have a 1949 3d edition that I used in 1949-50. Any interest in this book now?

    Edward: I first read that as a “3 D” edition – and was thinking of a Hamster Pop-Up book.

    Now I realize you meant “3rd” edition, and will go away somewhat sadder.

    Edward Voke: First, this ain’t eBay. Second, check here for current values (not much) and availabilities. Most of the copies for sale go for about five bucks not including shipping.
