Permission is granted to individuals who wish to copy this book, in whole or in part, for academic instructional or research purposes.

We have scanned all the pages of this book as images and converted the TIF files to PDF and compressed PostScript. When viewed in Adobe's Acrobat Reader, the quality is acceptable when some magnification is used. The files are relatively small, ranging from less than one megabyte up to about 3 megabytes in size.

Printing these files from Acrobat 4.x to a local postscript or networked postscript printer should be per the usual speed of your printer. However, we advise that users on a shared network do not attempt to print these images from Reader 3.x or earlier versions to a networked postscript printer. The postscript files from which the PDF files were created are very large, and it may take 3-5 minutes to print just one page to a network printer. We suggest that you upgrade your version to Reader 4.x, or alternatively, that you download and print off the net in the evening or weekends instead.

If you wish to download the entire book, the following archives are available: Zipped file, PDF, 17.35MB; and Zipped file, compressed PostScript, 58.76MB.
