After a quick look it seems like a very good book.
Plates are of great quality though some of them a a bit crammed.
There is no chapter about extinct rodents though the extinct specie might be treated among their families.
If you want to know if a specific taxa is included ask and I will take a look.

You'll have it soon, be patient!

I expect to be one of the last again, will probably order direct from Lynx next time as trade suppliers get theirs last it seems.

I only want to know whether they have a full account (like in the marsupial volume) or whether they only briefly mentioned in the family chapters like in the other mammal volumes. For example, the Bramble Cay Melomys was declared extinct by the IUCN in 2016, but it would be somewhat strange if it would not have a full account only because it is extinct. By the way 30 species of muroid rodents are listed as extinct in the IUCN Red List, some of them like the Vespucii's rat are in a monotypic genus.
