Topic: Suppressed issue of "Legacy."

Dear Mr. Bear: Many thanks for your kind reply. If only other requests of mine on these matters were answered so well.

It seems that the missing page is almost certainly the reason for suppression. What happens I think is that publishers run off a few advance copies of their books for distribution to critics and for the purposes of copyright registration. If a blunder is found it is obviously corrected before the book is actually released to the retailers, but instructions are sent to the copyright libraries to dump their defective copies or,
as appears to be the case with the British Library, to withdraw them from the general catalogue. I've discovered a number of other instances of this sort of thing.

Thank you again. -- Patrick Kearney

I suspect there were a few thousand copies pulled by the publisher, but don't know the actual number.
