Last week I went to the GPO in Chicago to pick up a copy of "Boxes for the
preservation of books: their design and construction," published in 1994 by
the LOC. The ever-helpful government clerk told me they didn't carry it and
that it was no longer being published. When prodded, however, he looked and
found a copy. He may have been telling the truth, though; neither Amazon
.com nor Barnesand Noble.com carry it, and I'm certain that they did recently.
If you're considering purchasing, best not delay. . .
