Annual Review of Neuroscience / Edition 1 available in Hardcover
Forty-one articles are presented, comprising an important report of developments in the field and a review of progress. It is, therefore, a disappointment to note that this highly respected publisher has allowed its production department to perfect bind Neuroscience and to hide that cheaper technique by notch adhesive binding: the signatures are left intact with the gutter edge cut through at several places to allow adhesive to reach part of each page. The head & tail remains not notched to give the appearance of intact signatures as in Smythe sewn binding. This deception results in a weaker binding than if the whole gutter edge were cut (to allow the glue to adhere to the entire inner edge of each page). At least Annual Reviews continues to bind in book cloth.
