BOOKS RECEIVED (SHORT FORM)


We begin to list books received for review by BMCR, sending the file twice; this first time just as a listing of books; the second file will include the tables of contents of all books listed, and so is a much bulkier file. Comment welcomed, especially on the device of sending twice this way.
