It looks as though Hyder Edward Rollins's two-volume edition of the letters are to be re-published in paperback next spring (Keats's favourite season...):

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Letters-John-Keats-1814-1818-1814-1821/dp/1107608201/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1323980946&sr=8-1
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Letters-John-Keats-1819-1821-1814-1821/dp/1107692040/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1323980946&sr=8-2

Tempting since I've always wanted to own them (I only have the Gittings Selected Letters). But I'd much rather own the 1958 edition - I've come to love second-hand copies of old books, especially when they have yellowing newspaper articles tucked inside the back cover :D

This is good news; I've been kicking myself for not buying an original copy of this edition I saw in a second-hand bookshop years ago but at least the edition is being reprinted which is rare and very much welcome.
