 *The bane of the publishing business is the over-run or over-production of an edition of a book. These over-runs result in what are called "remainders" ... the remaining, unsold books. These remainders are often recycled (read: "into the trash bin") or are sold to book dealers specializing in picking up remainders for pennies on the dollar. It is amazing how cheaply remainders can be bought, but it is less costly to the publishers than recycling. And, remaindering provides distribution and an economical outlet for many good and useful books.

We invite any dealers or bookstores (or individuals, for that matter) to bid on the remainders listed above. The main cost is packaging and shipping. Other economical means of acquisition may be used. [We leave that to your natural resourcefulness.]

 We will not turn down any ready-cash offer or turn away (from our door, literally) any serious bid.

Our policy, here at FICOA, is to bring out a new edition whenever new or revised additional material is developed, even though present stocks are not exhausted. Our books are technical books, not works of art. As such, continual improvement is our standard mode of operation.
