Dear colleagues,

Dr. Gesa Hartmann-Schroeder just informed me that the publisher of her 
latest book, Annelida, Borstenwuermer, Polychaeta (second revised 
edition) is about to go belly-up and is fusing with another publisher. As 
usual, such a fusion goes along with a loss of quality and conscience, and 
the new publisher apparently does not feel as much of an obligation 
towards scientific books for a somewhat specialized clientele and thus is 
trying to get rid of a number of such books.  They sent about 40 of her 
books to Dr. Hartmann-Schroeder, who is now selling them from her house 
(she retired from the Zoological museum Hamburg a few years ago) for 28 
US Dollars or 50 Marks a piece.  

Personally, I think it is a shame to have to sell a book like that practically in 
a yard sale, but of course this is a nice opportunity for people with little 
money to get a standard work on polychaetes of the North Sea.   

If you would like to get a book, please write to Dr. 
Hartmann-Schroeder and add a check for the amount mentioned above  
Her address is:

Dr. Gesa Hartmann-Schroeder
Werenbergstrasse 26
D-38640 Goslar

Unfortunately, the Hartmann's don't have email.  If you have some 
questions, you can write to me as well.  

With polychaetous regards,
