Excellent idea Katharine, I'd feel much better having permission to copy
even if it's only part of it. If Kosar is not alive I'm sure someone could
get in tuch with the publisher and from there one could find out who to

I'd be curious to know if major universities wouldn't have a copy of this
book around??? But from what many of you said I wouldn't spent to much time
on this, what's relevent to gum printing seems to be marginal at best.


PS. many people think copying stuff is a very minor thing until someone
copies their stuff, then they think it's a major major offense....
