Money to Spend, Books to Buy

I have about $200 for book-buying that will disappear if I don't spend it before I leave Nameless University at the end of the semester for my new digs at the University of the Unnamed.

What should I buy? Any suggestions?

The only two criteria are:

1) they must be academic books somehow related to early modern studies, whether historical, literary critical, or theoretical;

2) they must not be this book:


Help me out. What have you read lately that needs to be on my shelf?

    Are you thinking new or used? There's that big book not in our period but in our field that's like $140.

    Books by your new colleagues that you don't already own.

    Maybe 200 dollars worth of a book by a current colleague, who would then rocket to stardom in the Amazon Rankings (700, 000 here I come!).

    I don't know (early modern's not my field, although I've been enjoying the clever and entertaining writing here), but my loathing for Dan Brown cannot be measured. Mark Twain hated Jane Austen, evidently, and said that any library was a good library that did not have any of her books in it. Even if it had no other books. While I love Austen, this seems to me to exactly describe *The Da Vinci Code*.
