For others receiving this - was it mailed separately, or should I have also gotten the full TS 19 volume along with it? I thought they were holding on to the supplement and mailing it together with the full issue in order to save on postage, but it looks like John D. Rateliff also just got the supplement. Just wondering if mine got eaten, or is still not yet shipped.

Vol. XIX has not been published yet. West Virginia University Press has labeled the Chronology as a supplement because it's coming out the same year. Subscriptions are annual, so if you bought the Supplement you will receive the regular issue as part of your purchase.
That's assuming it does come out this year. Working on the supplement has put us way behind.

I don't like this explanation. Essentially, if they get it done this year then buyers get the regular volume but if its not out this year they won't? Volume 19 can be purchased for 2022 still with volume 20 available for preorder for 2023.
I feel they need to be clear about this. The Chronology is a supplement to the main volume, as was advertised. If volume 19 falls into next then they are going to be getting into a mess and could end up working in arrears unless they are willing to put out two full volumes next year for the price of a single volume.
Part of volume 19 is being delivered with the second part to follow. That is how most buyers will see it. TS changing the goalposts will create a bad feeling among some readers.

A complete miracle that it crossed the atlantic without any damage whatsoever. Can't believe there is no damage at all. Pic is exactly how I received it with an address label adhered to the rear.
Anyone know when the actual Vol 19 will ship (presumably included in the purchase price as originally advertised).
