This volume (and about 20 others) were due back to the library in 1999, but were just returned this week! They had long since been removed from the catalog (following our lost/missing books policy) so we are treating them as gifts to the library.
The branch where this volume was housed has recently done some aggressive weeding and other collection development, so we will make these volumes available to the selector, so she can choose whether we want to retain it.
