There is a programme going out on BBC Radio 4 on Friday morning at 11 a.m. 
UK time, and a linked feature that might be of interest at 


The article mentions Kate Teltscher's forthcoming Oxford World's Classics 
edition and links to the OpenLibrary google scan, but I can't resist 
mentioning (forgive me if this is too commercial) that I worked on a 
facsimile reissue of Hobson-Jobson for the Cambridge Library Collection in 
2010, and found it absolutely fascinating reading. You can see details of 
the Cambridge offering at 

I'd be very grateful for any suggestions of other out of copyright 
language policy/linguistics-related books that would be deserving of good 
quality paperback reissues; these could also include grammars or 
glossaries of languages that are now endangered or extinct.
