Neale & Littledale's Commentary on the Psalms

My thanks to Lancelot Andrewes Press: thanks to the sky-high Aussie dollar (now worth more than the greenback, owing to continued U.S. economic decline), I have been able to afford to purchase their 1999 facsimile reprint in hardback of Neale and Littledale's magisterial Commentary on the Psalms (3rd edition, 1874), a set of volumes I've wanted for years, owing to their excellent focus on the spiritual interpretation of the Psalms drawn from Patristic and mediæval writers and liturgical sources.  I just picked up the parcel and unpacked them to-day.

Terra, if you read this, may I recommend these to you, if you don't already have a copy or access to them?

Thanks Joshua, they do look useful and very pertinent to my researches.

Unfortunately I'm so broke that I have no prospect of acquiring them in the near future, $A notwithstanding. But I'll add them to my wish list!

PS Discovered a copy of vols 1-3 on Google books...

I was able to purchase the set from an American (gasp!) bookseller for a fraction of the amount asked for the 'novus ordo' edition. Just go to abebooks or other online sellers and you too may find some bargains in 19cent. bindings.
