Matakari, Pabulum's 'old tricks' are very welcome - we got a good workout today!

Neveracrossword ,I needed a lie-down in a darkened room once I finished it.
Thanks, Novalis - but you'd have a sense of satisfaction as well as exhaustion?

Matakari, I think you might be back with more of your batches!
Yes Neveracrossword. I always get a feeling of satisfaction when I finish the Spectator, EV and Mephisto etc because I am acutely aware of the limitations of my cruciverbal ability.
Thanks, Novalis - you sound a bit like me (though I don't always finish Mephisto!).
Did those hints help Matakari. Let us know if you want the actual answer's for any. Must admit 26 were a new word for me
Question Author
Many thanks, all! The 3-letter word for rich man in 34(d) is still eluding me, though. Thanks again!
Matakari, the three-letter word always sounds a bit rude to me, even though it's valid and is in Chambers! The answer to 42 A provides a useful letter. Have you got that one yet?
