got my copy yesterday: admirable job
everything one would expect such a treatment to be; thorough, succinct, well-balanced.
(i only wish it were spiral-bound and set in single-column 9 pt font, but hey...)

"As an amateur, I was really self-taught on Blatchley's Coleoptera of Indiana. I used that book for 25 years without meeting any professionals, and so I know what I need to see in a key!" (Jan Ciegler, pers. comm.)

Rebinding is inexpensive...
I've converted a number of paperbacks to spiral bound... Any copy shoppe should be able to do it for a nominal fee...

oh! thanks a ton -- i didn't know that
the paper will definitely endure the punishment
