Classic Reprints Anyone?

      We've looked into the costs of obtaining reprints of three classic
C. elegans lineage papers that appeared in Developmental Biology.  The
papers are:
      Sulston, J. E., and Horvitz, H. R. (1977) Dev. Biol. 56: 110-156.
      Kimble, J., and Hirsh, D. (1979). Dev. Biol. 70: 396-417.
      Sulston, J. I., Schierenberg, E., White, J. G., and Thomson, J. N.
           (1983). Dev.Biol. 100: 64-119.
We would have to purchase a minimum of 100 reprints, which we could then
distribute, at cost.  The cost to you for one set of three papers would
be $40.  But before we order 100 of each we must be confident that we
will eventually sell them.  So if you are fairly sure you would like to
buy the set of three papers, please let us know (send no money at this
stage!).  If we find that there is enough interest, we will order
reprints and let you know that they will be available.

      We also looked into the possibility of obtaining reprints of the
classic "The mind of a worm":  White, J. G., Southgate, E., Thomson, J.
N., and Brenner, S. (1986) Phil. Trans. R.. Soc. Lond. B Biol. Sci. 314:
1-340.  The cost of one reprint would be about $100.  These would be
photocopies, not true reprints, but the quality of the sample that the
Royal Society sent us is quite good.  The price might go down a bit if
we had many orders.  So please let us know if you are fairly sure you
would like to buy a reprint of this paper.
