    Re: Willmann-Bell astronomical publications

    Thanks for the information, Frank; excellent news.  I was rather pessimistic about the outcome of the Willman-Bell inventory after more than a year, and had visions of book-filled dumpsters in landfills.  Also, I'm pleased that vulture booksellers (with apologies to those splendid soaring birds) will be foiled. I looked for a field guide to Messier objects which I did not manage to buy from Willman-Bell before they closed for business, and I found it listed in AbeBooks (it's still there) for US$ 198.60 (original W-B price: US$ 24.95).  I'm a firm believer in free enterprise, and the law of supply and demand is practically the only law of the dismal science of economics which I understand, but there is a difference between a fair profit and usury.  I'll step down from the soap box now.

    Bset regards,
