  "Genera of Araceae"
From: Don Burns <burns at mobot.org> on 1997.09.11 at 07:58:25(1224)
For those of you in the U.S. who may have planned to order this new book
from Balogh Scientific Books, this morning Balogh advised that they do
not expect to have the books until sometime around mid-October. So if
you are anxious to get a copy I suggest ordering through RBG when you
receive the order form from Peter Boyce.

Kew accepts order by fax. I'll supply info if required

Something of which Don was not aware.....

Peter Boyce is sending a rather sizable quantity of "Genera of Araceae" to
the IAS. He will be selling and autographing there.

Now, you can order from whomever.... but, if you would like to have an
autograph.... Peter will be happy to do so...

You may order from the IAS...

Send a note to the IAS that you would like to have a copy. Peter will
autograph and we will hold your copy pending receipt of your check....

The only problem is we do not know exactly how much it will cost... As you
know, it is listed in the Brochure at 86.25 Pounds..... Now, how that
translates to US Dollars now and if there will be a new exchange rate by
the end of Sept.... I don't know... We will also have to add postage.

So, your choice... Autographed or no....

. Keep in mind that Dewey said there may be a new
>exchange rate by the end of Sept, however this service will keep you updated.

Also keep in mind that the price Peter has quoted is 75 Pounds... This
addition is shipping to get the books here fast.... so that they WILL be
here.... so, convert on that basis....
