Dear Photosynthesis Colleagues:
I am delighted to inform you that Kluwer Academic Publishers (Dordrecht, 
the Netherlands) has taken the lead in initiating a new series of books :
"Advances in Photosynthesis". The first volume of the series " The 
Molecular Biology of Cyanobacteria" (edited by our distinguished 
colleague Professor Donald R. Bryant of The Pennsylvania State 
University) was published in late 1994, and has been released in 1995.
It contains 28 chapters by top authorities in the field. It includes 10 
color plates; and is 881 pages long. It has 3 indexes (Organism index; 
Gene and Gene Product index; and Subject index).Its ISBN number is:
0-7923-3222-9. Other numbers are: QR99.63.M65 1995; and, 589.4'6--dc20.
	It is really a wonderful book, available in hard-bound as well as 
paper-back editions. If interested in finding out more about its 
availability, please write directly to: Kluwer Academic Publishers ( 101 
Philip Drive, Norwell, MA 02061,USA;or PO Box 322, 3300 AH Dordrecht, the 
	I donot consider the above as advertisement, but information 
to photosynthesis colleagues. However, if anyone is offended by this note,
I would appreciate a note directly to me at : GOV at UIUC.EDU, not to the
entire network. If several colleagues think that I should not have placed
this information on the Network, I promise to refrain from doing so when
the second volume appears in 1995. Those who think that such information
is useful, they are welcome to write to me too.

	I take this opportunity to express my praise for Professor James 
Barber's series "Topics in Photosynthesis" (Elsevier, Amsterdam) that had 
started in 1976 with its first title "The Intact Chloroplast".I 
personally liked the "Forewords" in this series. The first one was by our 
beloved friend late Robin Hill. In addition, Jim had included 
"obituaries" of distinguished photosynthesizers who had left us by the 
time the book went to press. I thank Jim for bringing to us these 
wonderful volumes that guided all of us in our teaching and research.

Your most obedient Servant,

"The firefly seems a fire, the sky looks flat;
Yet sky and fly are neither this nor that".
This quotation is from "Panchatantra" (believed to be composed in 
Kashmir, about 200 B.C.). It was thought that "One must command a wealth 
of detailed fact, ever alert to the deceptiveness of seeming fact."
