    John, I agree that the Library of America editions are accessible and priced very reasonably.

    The major problem with them is that they are not reprints of the original published text. Thus citing them means that unless you own a copy of that book, you have to track down in your Harvard or reprint version where the citation actually comes from. So again if you cite this edition, your readers have to struggle to find the actual quotation in their own edition.
