Subject: IJCS Index billing

Greetings! Our previous serials vendor just contacted us concerning Brill's
recent billing for the index issue (vol. 1-36, December 1996) of
International Journal of Comparative Sociology. According to the vendor,
they just received a request for payment for the issue. The issue was sent
to us in 1997.

The publisher states in the preface of the issue: "In view of its value for
your research collection we have taken the liberty of sending the Index to
you now as a supplement to your 1996 subscription..." I understand that
statement stating that the publisher took the liberty of sending the issue
unsolicited by us. Now, over two years later, they are billing us. Of
course, we are given the option of returning the issue if we do not want to
pay for it, providing we haven't stamped it!

Anyone else sharing this bizarre experience?
