	Knuth split volume 4 in half almost two decades ago.  I have seen a  
Kinkos version of the Combinatorics & Boolean function volume, which I  
would assume would be the first of the two.

	I saw Knuth at my last talk at the Computer History Museum.  At the  
time, he told me that he read the Annals regularly.
