Many thanks to Dr. P. C. Sarkar, who swapped two Chase books with me in 2005.
In 2006, he generously gave me two further books as gifts to enlarge my collection.

Many thanks to the Chase expert Mr. Ravi Thyagarajan (rthyagar[at]sbcglobal.net)
who completed my collection giving me in July 2006 as gifts three very rare books,
which were missing in my Chase book collection.
