Ah, you have a small problem. The 14 & 15 volumes are the Shostakovich. They are out of print because of copyright issues. (something to do with a copyright convention with Russia finally being signed) Late last year Encore announced (here and on the Tubaeuph mailing list) that they were going out of print and encouraging everyone to buy them (any remaining copies had to be destroyed).
It would be illegal to copy them, of course. Perhaps someone in your studio has a set they could lend you, or someone on the list has a set they could lend you. Just so you could see them mind you. And resist the temptation to get near a Kinko's with them.
