Free Books

At the office we have two copies of the 1993 Annual Book of ASTM Standards, Vol. 15.09: Paper; Packaging: Flexible Barrier Materials; Business Imaging Products. This is the volume that includes the four ASTM standards for permanence of paper, and much more. It has 1368 pages and weighs a bit over four pounds. Since we now have the 1994 volume, we will send it to the first person who requests it and is willing to pay for postage and handling, $15.00.

We also have a spare 1993 Walden's ABC Guide to Paper Production Yearbook, a 650-page directory of manufacturers, converters, sales agents and representatives and paper merchants. This normally costs over $100. We will send this to the first person who sends us $12 for postage and handling.

The Alkaline Paper Advocate is issued six times a year and has about 450 subscribers. Subscriptions (which include a free pH pen and a list of Useful Addresses) are on a calendar year basis: All start with the first issue of the year, unless otherwise requested, and end on Dec. 31, or after the last issue of the year has appeared. An index for the previous year is sent out in the first quarter. Individual subscriptions, and uncomplicated subscriptions from institutions, are $35; full-time students $20; institutions $45. All issues are in print and indexed. Checks should be made out to Abbey Publications, 7105 Geneva Dr., Austin, TX 78723. Visa/ Master Card payments are convenient for payments from abroad, but for domestic payments we prefer checks drawn on a U.S. bank.
