Hi Mike,

I've purchased from you on line several times in the past, the last batch about 2 months ago.  I was wondering if you or someone you know are selling any 1964 reprints.  I'm looking for individual issues not bound volumes.  I need 81 between the years 1891 & 1907.  If you know of anyone, I can provide a list of issues I need.  Thanks.  Tom Wilson
