Keyes D. Metcalfe was wrongly cited as Lee Metcalfe on the back page of the most recent issue.

Robert Espinosa, who has edited the Supplies column since October 1984, has had to resign due to the press of other duties. Mr. Espinosa is a practising book conservator and familiar with the supplies available for that specialty, and his contributions have been most welcome.
In the last issue, v.10 #6, on page 87, a seventh issue was promised for 1986, as there was in 1985. However, that plan has been scrapped, because a) that would have made two December issues in the same year, which would have been confusing, and b) the issue in which most of the extra material is appearing (this one, v.11 #1) will not be ready to mail till January 6 or so, which means it must be called January and be part of the 1986 volume.
The Abbey Newsletter: Bookbinding and Conservation is issued six or more times a year and has about 1050 subscribers. (Vol. 9 had seven issues.) New subscribers automatically receive all issues published in the current year, unless they request otherwise. All subscriptions expire on the last day of the year. To initiate or renew a subscription, send name, address, and a check for $35 (students $20), or the equivalent in £ sterling to Abbey Newsletter, 6216 HBLL, Brigham Young University, Provo, UT 84602 (801/378-2512; after hours, call 373-1598). Note: the Newsletter is not part of the University or the Library.
No paid advertisements are accepted, but any notice that is appropriate and has news value will be printed if there is room for it. Written contributions and bits of news are welcome. Claims for issues never received, or received in damaged condition, will be honored within a year of publication.
The Abbey Newsletter is indexed in Art & Archaeology Technical Abstracts, Institute of Paper Chemistry Abstract Bulletin and Graphic Arts Literature Abstracts (RIT). It is not indexed in the usual periodical indexes because it is a newsletter. All issues but v.1 #2 are in print.
The Editor encourages readers to copy and pass around any article from the Newsletter, even entire issues; but before copying any part on a scale that amounts to republication, they must obtain permission from both author and Editor.
