Investigator's Handbook p. 71: Under Archeologist, the skill should be "Archaeology" not "Archeology".

Investigator's Handbook p. 72: Under Asylum Attendant it should be "two interpersonal skills" not "two interpersonal skill".

Investigator's Handbook: Page 69, Doctor of Medicine is listed with "see Psychiatrist", however unlike all other entries with a "see" reference, it has it's own sub-section on page 77-78.

Investigator's Handbook, Page 92: There may be some definition of executive of which I am unaware, but to me it seems very strange to give clerks and executives the same attributes, especially credit rating?

What page is Harvey on?

Apparently the pagination was added before _The Dunwich Horror_ -- he is on 47, not 35, as it says in the Introducing Harvey Walters sidebar.

Investigator's Handbook, pages 51 and 103: The side bar "Living standards" is pretty much duplicated here, but with the following differences:

[*] Page 51 lacks the intro that page 103 has.
[*] Page 103 does not set "Accommodation" and "Travel" in bold.
[*] Page 103 does not set "Credit Rating 99: Super Rich" as a heading.

Even if they are supposed to be duplicated (with or without the intro), shouldn't the type setting be the same for both?

Edit: A related issue is the fact that this side bar pushes the "Becoming a believer" sidebar to page 104, which is not on the same spread as the Cthulhu Mythos section.

Page 25 investigators handbook - incorrect symbol in place of the accented 'e' in 'Bibliotheque'.

Also on same page - 'Buenos Aires' is rendered as 'Buenos Ayres'.

Keeper book, page 87, in the size entry, for value 80, it's missing a comma in "very tall strongly built"

With no indication in the email as to a better path to provide this feedback, I am leaving it here. If you would like me to submit this feedback another way, please let me know!

My concern as I'm reading through the proof is that the internal drop shadows decrease the readability of the chapter titles. It doesn't make them UNreadable, but it does make it a little more difficult, and takes away from the professional look of everything else.

Thanks for giving us this advanced look at the Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition books!
