2) publications advertising products or services supplied by the publisher, even though they might describe activities or technical progress in some branch of industry or commerce;

b) publications considered to be of a transitory character; typical examples are

1) timetables, price-lists, telephone directories,

2) programmes of entertainments, exhibitions, fairs,

3) company regulations, reports and directives and circulars,

4) calendars, and

5) electronic texts under development;

c) publications in which the text is not the most important part, including

1) printed music documents where the music is more important than the words, and

2) maps and charts (with the exception of atlases), e.g. astronomical charts, hydrographical and   geographical maps, wall maps, road maps, geological surveys in map form and topographical plans.
