Since my last report, I have received a proof copy of volume I of my Pettus book. Besides some minor text revisions to achieve consistency in the use of roman vs. Arabic numerals for volume numbers, everything was in order except for color pictures that were too dark. I have asked the publisher to try adjusting the brightness. I hope to receive a new proof copy next week. Once I approve the proof copy, I expect the printer to send me the entire shipment of books in about four more weeks. To sum up, the publication process seems to be on schedule. Once I have the books, I will begin mailing them to customers in the order I received their subscriptions.
