Hi Cindy and Jamie in Michigan and Jim, Cindy, the edition I have just validated is not the one you found. It was published by Philadelphia, Lippincott in October, 1974. I've looked up the ISBN and the title on Library of Congress, Amazon, B&N, and then searched with Google. Everything I'm finding says that it is out of copyright. I want to make sure, though, so if you can have a look when you get a chance, I would appreciate it. The book will be ready to submit once we get this part settled. Jamie in Michigan, excellent scan and picture descriptions once again! THANKS! Jim, glad you and Lisa had a successful trip to Washington! Cindy 4 To handle yourself, use your head.

I don't know for sure if this is the edition you're working with, Jamie and Cindy, but if it is, HarperCollins copyrighted it in 2005; the last line says it has new matter. If what you have is a different edition or published with a different date, let me know, because there are some others listed. G.
