I just noticed that the earlier books were I and II (Roman numerals) as is the text of this book (i.e. Book III). Do we want to do the same? Also would we want the chapter numbers as 1.1, 1.2, etc. (or as 3 I, 3 II, 3 III, 3 IV, etc. as the book does)?

Frankly, I am mystified. The earlier two volumes have different set-ups for the MW or the signification as a finished product. In the second, he only used the title of the chapter, no numbers except for section. Because it seemed sort of repetitious, given that all the chapters come from Volume 3, I haven't included it, except when I identify it in my recording of the intro as Chapter 3:1. True, when I cite in MW, I switch from the Roman numeral to the Arabic in the MW, which bothers me too. The only place I see a Roman numeral is a part of the overall title where the III appears. I am babbling and not resolving the issue at all. Actually, you are right that I should be citing in the MW what appears in the book, which would be Chapter 3:I, where Chapter actually means book.

Thanks for your willingness to work on the biography. I will set it up soon. Jim

In fact, very few people will be looking at the LV book page while listening to the audio so I don't think it is very important (as seen in books I and II which are quite different as you note).

I was mistaken. The chapter numbers are Roman numerals too. I will change the first two.
