A Thank-you to Supporters

In 1990, our donor categories will be streamlined to simplify operations. They will be based only on the amount donated over and above the subscription fee, and will be considered to be made to Abbey Publications, Inc., rather than to an individual newsletter. This will reflect the intentions of most of the donors, we believe.

The new categories are:


$25 and over


$100 and over


$500 and over Donations for 1990 now total $570. Donors are:


The Bookbinder's Warehouse, Inc.
The New York Community Trust - James Talcott Fund


M. Susan Barger
Julia Miller
D.H. Smith


Paper Catalogs For Sale Cheap

The office receives three annual or semiannual catalogs, and has to discard superseded issues to make room for the new ones. However, the old issues still have useful information in them. We would rather find good homes for them than throw them away. Please contact us and let us know if you would like one for the cost of wrapping and sending it.

The issues on hand right now are the following, one copy each:

Competitive Grade Finder, 1987/88, with the alkaline papers highlighted
Walden's Paper Catalog, Spring 1989
Lockwood-Post's Directory, 1989

These publications are described in detail on p. 14 in the April 1989 issue of this newsletter.
