We are delighted with the publicity but would like to bring to your attention an error. IBB books are sent overseas in sea containers which hold approximately 20,000 books. Occasionally, we ship in lesser quantities, but we have a 1,000 book minimum.

Any notice that is appropriate and newsworthy will be printed if there is room for it. Written contributions and bits of news are welcome. Claims for issues never received will be honored within 6 months of publication. Defective issues will be gladly replaced on request.

The Editor encourages readers to photocopy freely from the Newsletter; but the Editor's permission must be obtained before making more than 20 copies of any part. This allows any necessary corrections to be made before duplication.
