I just visited the Vintage website, and it does indeed seem to be in print.  If it proves to have gone out of print, an alternative, if you're willing to have the students purchase the book directly, is to send them to the excellent website, AbeBooks.com, a large-scale conglomeration of book sellers in the U.S. and the U.K., where many copies are available, mostly at low prices and with free shipping.

Subject: One of Ours out of print?

Hello all,
I’m co-teaching with a British history prof a course next fall entitled “1918: Anglo-American Culture and Society in a World at War.”  I want to teach One of Ours as our American novel of the war and I ordered the Vintage edition, but our bookstore is saying it’s out of print. Really???!!!

I know that some might say I should use the SE, but we’re trying to keep costs down.  The other editions available on Amazon are those “Create Space” Publisher editions (predatory publishers?).

What’s going on?  What editions are you all using?  How can this go out of print in 2018!

Hi, Evelyn,

Looking at Amazon.com, I’m guessing that Vintage let it go out of print because of competition from all of the print-on-demand houses, who can freely issue the novel because it’s in the public domain. Of course the same is true of her novels of the teens, but One of Ours has likely had a smaller demand than those novels.

Best,

Melissa Homestead

The Vintage edition is not out of print so far as we know--we have it in
stock currently and I believe we ordered around Christmas time.

We have ordered a couple of the CreateSpace editions in the past, because
we had customers who were looking for a larger print specifically. I would
not order those. We found some mistakes and the typesetting is just ugly
besides.

Sorry to not have other options.

Hello Everyone—I taught a course in British and American Novels last year focusing on the expatriate  period, where we covered ONE OF OURS, and we used the Cather Archive extensively—many editions to chose from, including the full scholarly edition, with some amazing historical context—and lots of the amazing scholarship that many of you all have contributed over the years, featured in one convenient spot:



https://cather.unl.edu/bibl.0004.html



This is an amazing, free, resource.



I had ordered the Hastings College edition for the class, but we could have done without it—most of the students used their screens. Here is a link to the Hastings Press catalog: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__sites.google.com_hastings.edu_hastings-2Dcollege-2Dpress_available-2Dtitles_forgotten-2Dtexts&d=DwIGaQ&c=Cu5g146wZdoqVuKpTNsYHeFX_rg6kWhlkLF8Eft-wwo&r=1P1U_QmwwektPDtD1M1foXXGqUzLgygf16Nt7kNKpE0&m=SM_a5IIQuLrMNMbCuvcdRD_a5kduwqbOHZGDYv_tW1U&s=6Bix6i_bOTr7lY3fj7eoXRErZ4DhCZZ7ujCu_plY_JY&e=



Whenever I teach Cather, I am SO thankful for all the amazing work you all do in the Cather scholarly community.



Regards,



matt

Subject: Re: One of Ours out of print?

Yes, I actually dropped teaching *One of Ours* this time around for my Cather Seminar because I didn’t feel as if there was a decent text out there. Wouldn’t it be nice if the U of Nebraska Press could make the Scholarly Editions of the exorbitantly-priced hardcovers “print-on-demand”?

Best wishes,

Chuck
