I think I have put preface in frontmatter only, because I wanted page
number to appear in roman numerals. (It is in a machine at home and I am

not appear in the toc.

No, I was referring to the picins package that CVR mentioned. I have not
used it so far, but this seems to be an alternative for wrapfig with
more options.

Thank you for the additional information you have given.
