Last year it was Schott's Miscellany, which I can't spell reliably but
which if you don't have it is still around and still wonderful.

If it were still available, *The Well-Tempered Sentence* by someone

Sentence* came out my chances of getting that became very slim, if it
ever even existed at all.
