On behalf of professors Thompson and Müller, I take the liberty of sending the lists a little plugging for the forthcoming Niels Peter Lemche Festschrift. Although 15 of the 30 articles are in English (14 Danish, 1 Norwegian), the book still has to make it on Danish market conditions, which in this case means the publisher demands a certain number of copies sold in advance by subscription to ensure that he's not throwing money out the window.

By subscribing you get the 450 page book at app. two thirds the full price, i.e. US$ 37,- [DKK 225,-] (+ package and posting) rather than the full 53,- [DKK 325,-], plus you get the option of having your name included in the list of congratulants.
