    Dear authors of the article, wanted to amend such data. Circulation of the first catalog was 250 000 copies rather than 100 000. A circulation 2010goda less than 198 million, even if only because he is 2011mln 195. These data are valid, maybe I myself am an employee of the company and have access to accurate and truthful information.
    Thank you. Sincerely, Marina.
