English (US) Proofreading of a Book Part (Academic)

Looking for a native English speaker (US) for proofreading of a book part (book front matter, title pages up until the end of the first chapter) with approx. 25 pages. The book is an academic thesis in the field of space science/technology.

Since the author has no native speaker competences in English, the text should be reviewed for orthography, grammar and correct formulation, especially w.r.t. a good common parlance.

The text will be delivered as PDF file; corrections are expected as PDF annotations. This is just the first job posting of a series of job postings, since the work on the book is ongoing and all content have to be proofread.

Please do only place serious bids from native US English speakers with excellent language skills only. As I'm a student, my bugdet is very limited.

Upon request and for clarification: The book's size is 6.69" x 8.66", not the standard letter paper format (8.5" x 11") --- so it contains not as much words per page as an usual academic thesis.
