Per Laursen's Leafcasting Book Available in English

Enclosed with this issue is the first part of an English translation of Per Laursen's historical and technical book on leafcasting, which I have been working on for the last eight years, and which will be published as Monograph Supplement No. 2. It is printed on lightweight paper to enable us to send it out with this issue without increasing postage costs. It is only a sample, of course. The page numbers in the table of contents are not all there because the rest of the volume had not been pasted up at the time. The book itself will be on heavier paper and in a soft cover. In order to cover costs, we are selling it for $30 a copy postpaid. We are taking orders now.
