Any Recommendations for an Economical Collection of Typeface Families?

Although many are shopworn by now, one of the best gifts I ever got was when Adobe included a large chunk of their then-Postscript 1 library on, I believe, an Illustrator upgrade CD some 10 or so years ago. I'm wondering whether anyone knows of any similar legitimate collections of types both serif an sans for book-work from real foundries (not the "1000 fonts for a penny apiece" knock-offs that, essentially, steal from the fonts' real creators).

Thank you.

If you qualify for educational pricing, then the Adobe collection Typefaces for Learning (or something of the sort) is the best value, with over 100 fonts for about $100.

The full Adobe package, like that of the other major foundaries, is several thousand dollars.

There's a WIKI page for this that we started:

Always looking for additions to it if people know of any...
