This really is great news indeed--bravo to OUP and the NEH.  I'm not
sure "OHDAS" would make sense as a label, though, given that the
first two volumes are still RHHDAS.  "HDAS" seems to me to make the
most sense, neutralizing the distinction.  Speaking of which, can
anyone think of other cases off the tops of their respective heads in
which the first m volumes of a multi-volume work were published by
one publisher and the final n volumes by another?
