Luther's Works on CD-ROM. Version 1.0. Edited by Jaroslav Pelikan and Helmut T. Lehmann. Fortress/Concordia, $179.00.
My library boasts seven linear feet of red-bound volumes of Luther's Works, American Edition (LW) plus the Theodore Tappert version of the Book of Concord. This 56-book collection was assembled at the rate of a book a month on a graduate student's income in the early 1970s. To replace these volumes today would cost more than $1,500 in hard copy, but only $179 (introductory price until May 1) in a shiny CD-ROM.
