Do you have any other info on Funk's 3-volume set? I'm assuming that it must
be the same as the "Beginning-Intermediate" volumes (labeled I,II, and III)
that I found not to long ago at a used bookstore in Cambridge.

I'm wondering:

1. Is the workbook you mention part of this collection that I'm still missing
(and still in print)?

2. How does this relate to Funk's work with Blass/Debrunner?

3. Any more specific impressions you might share?
