Publishers' shipping Stephen Perisho 21 Dec 1999 21:28 UTC

To whom it may concern:

        This has probably already been dealt with, but being new to the
list, I'll ask my question anyway.  Is it true what I suspect and also
hear, namely, that some publishers ship first to individuals, and only
subsequently, in a second batch, to institutions (or perhaps, sometimes,
vice versa)?  And that this accounts in part for the fact that a scholar
can sometimes know of the availability of an issue for which my agent
hasn't even been invoiced yet?
