heres already the cover to Welten, and I find it very impressive, Im told that the colours will be a bit more brilliant, and that your name will become better to read. And this is the schedule:
Dec. 13 to 22 the galleys become available, which I shall help to correct day by day.
Dec. 22 to Jan. 6 page-proof.
Jan. 10 Ms of index to printer.
Jan. 13 to 20. the pages must be authorized for print.
Printing Feb. 3 to 13.
Binding Feb. 14 to 27.
Deliveries will start on Feb. 28.
This is indeed a tight and efficient schedule. A new or additional foreword I should have by Dec. 20: a possibility would be for you to have it telexed (e. g. through Doubleday) to Umschau. Their telex number is Germany 411 964. On the other hand, if you feel it better to refrain for the time being, the concise tabellized record of success would just as well update the book for todays readers.
Good luck and best wishes!
