	Sorry to reply with all of the material of previous postings in place,
but International Publishers is at 239 West 23rd Street, New York, New York,
10011.  They can also be reached at 212-366-9816 or FAX 212-366-9820.  You
might want to call and ask if they have a spare catalog; they have quite an
extensive listing.
