Dear all,

In response to queries from public libraries in the U.K. and France about the 
forthcoming new edition of "Library World Records", it is still in final production 
stages, and will be published in September 2008.


I am in Berlin at the moment, trying to iron out a German edition of the book. 


The official publication date (English edition) will be announced on the official 
website (see below).

 

The book can be ordered in advance from the American publishers McFarland & 
Co (links below).
