Hello Harry,

This is as I thought, although Tee Publishing, EIM's parent company, have 
re-published older works from time to time, and as I said before, the new 
owwners of M.E.have taken to publishing individual construction series from 
their archives, so it was worth an ask. As you say, in this instance, Peter 
has taken care of me however, fortunately it would seem!

Regards, and wishing you and everyone else on the group a Merry Christmas 
and a Happy New Year.
