Digitized Versions of Rare and Antiquarian Books
E-Books and Readers



New December 8, 2010:

Often, when doing research, we'd like to get our hands on a rare or antiquarian book.

Bob Mackett has sent in a list of some very hard-to-find books, relevant to our area
of interest. These books have all been digitized. 

Bob, thanks for this ... Al

Hi Bob: Thanks very much for the links to the digitized books. I think that I’ll start a new web page just for these didgitzed versions – and I’ll ask for a Kindle or other e-book reader for Christmas. This will help get through the next few winter months!
