I think some of these might be a reprint of really old translations hence no payment. I don't know for certain.

I've only read one book (Prefaces by Jean Paul, who is a really interesting writer with a very baroque style)

Had no idea De Quincey wrote a story about Kant's last years?!

They made a movie out of it.

They've got a couple of interesting authors from Latin America on it.

a crazily inventive treasure—every sentence a brocaded surprise—I sense affinities with Severo Sarduy or José Lezama Lima—but Lamborghini attains his own odd pinnacle—Jessica Sequeira’s translation offers a loving exegesis of the ribald labyrinth—

Looks like an awesome book

Absolute gem of a book here, typeset and edited by @jsief. No small feat. 17th century spelling intact.

There was / still might be a 30% off sale. Bought three books.

The Jeremy Taylor sermons is a great release and the best 'revival' of a great, obscure English writer since the NYRB put out Burton's Anatomy. A real must.
