[Consald-l] defective book from Delhi


Dear colleagues,
I have just discovered that Princeton's copy of the book listed below is defective: it was printed with the following facing page-pairs printed blank: 228-229, 232-233, 236-237, and 240-241. If you have a copy of this book (WorldCat shows Penn and Cornell and others), could you kindly check your copy and see if it is complete or has the same defect. If it is complete, could you perhaps make good photocopies of these missing (blank) pages, so that we could tip-in the copies into our bound book? Alternatively, maybe we need to seek replacements from the publisher?

[Consald-l] British intelligence on missionary activity 1900-47?


Does anyone know of some recently-released British government reports
related to government monitoring of missionary activity? Someone came into
the library today saying that they heard that some previously unreleased
reports had been made public and wanting to know how to find them.
