BBC Enterprises put out some of his talks on an album called "Some Of His
Talks", and Heritage (which evolved from either Audio Rarities or Audio
Archives) had a ten-inch LP of a 1937 short wave broadcast, but I don't think
the Linguaphone set has ever been reissued, except for a minute or so on a
National Vocarium 78. I could be wrong.
That Linguaphone set isn't that rare..I own a copy and I've seen it on auction
