Re: Binding Incomplete volumes Laura Vogler 10 Mar 2005 17:29 UTC

We bind incomplete volumes.  However, I will wait at least one year to do
this as issues will often mysteriously reappear.  I also try to find the
missing issue through a couple of back issue sources or the publisher.  I
will indicate on the spine what is missing.
