Sharon, I do want to pick up on the passing reference you made to Zuleieka 
Dobson.  I have a beat up but whole first of this book, with the little 
paper tab saying that Francis Hackett's Intro was received too late for 
inclusion, and offering to send the buyer a copy with intro at a later date, 
if the buyer would express this desire to the publisher.  I assume that this 
tab is what you mean by errata?  My main curiosity about this notice is 
about the pace of the publication of these volumes back then.  The little 
tab almost sounds like this volume was treated like the daily news...we need 
to get it out there, even if we have to send customers a new volume when the 
intro is added.  What was the big rush?
