This is an excellent Pre-pub! These translations are a dramatic improvement on the 19th century ones. They are much easier to read and--in my limited use of them so far--more literal.

(If I could afford this set, I'd order it!)

Yahoo!!!

Understatement.

This is exciting indeed! I have about a dozen and a half of these in print, and they've been worth every penny. The 6 volumes of Augustine's Expositions of the Psalms are worth their weight in gold. Like the edition of Confessions in this series, they are all translated by Maria Boulding, OSB. The introduction by Michael Fiedrowicz included in the first volume is very well done. 

Now to find $1300 in loose change under the couch cushions...

Still $1300 CAD, alas. It's not that the collection isn't worth it, though.

To the powers at be,

Is there an estimated timeline until this resource goes live? (Trying to figure out how long I have to scrape the money together to take advantage of the pre-pub 50% discount). Thanks.

I would bet at least the other side of Easter, at the earliest. Probably this calendar year.

Any chance we can put this on a payment plan?

I'd be grateful if they'd simply break up the bundle.

FL doesn't typically comment on those kinds of questions. Very probably, it is a long time off. You <should> have ample notice of its release. You can also return it... although 1K is a big chunk.

But if they break it up before producing it, some volumes probably won't get produced, at least as quickly. Other people will complain and get confused. The ones that do get produced would be harder to market as a collection later, the PrePub discount/volume would be lessened, and it would be harder and less likely that the future volumes would get through.

I'm sure it'll be broken up after it's been live for awhile. In the meantime, well, now is a great time to collect them all.

So start saving up now is what you are suggesting...

Admittedly 1K is a hefty bit of change, but as some of the larger volumes rarely dip below $70 each, to pick them all up for under $25/book seems to be worth the effort to save up.

Alas, my previous comment was a case of clarity taken hostage to brevity. I should have said, I'd be grateful if they'd simply break up the bundle after production is complete. Something which is not always guaranteed.

$70 dollars for a print edition is one thing... The morality of physical books being sold for the same price as digital books (Which have 0 raw material, printing, storage, shipping, etc. cost) is a whole separate issue. Zip it!

The "value" wasn't in mind by my comment. Rather, I meant to say: If you decide you can't swing it when it goes live, you can "return" the item, but $1,000 is a large amount (at least for those of us who would inquire about a payment plan) to have to carry on your credit card during the time it is charged until the time your refund is processed.

My mistake. Yes, I agree wholeheartedly.

The total cost of all 6 bundles is $1,200.94. So, there's a good discount for the complete bundle.
