Sorry Clive, just have not had the time, in fact had to move this off the back burner and put it in storage. However, promise it will get done, just not in the very near future.

Regards, Tom

The Hathi Trust, which is digitizing these books as if they're all about to burn, is ferocious about copyright.

Hathi states that "volumes published outside the US from 1876 through 1923 are treated as public domain for users accessing the volumes from US IP addresses, however they are treated as in-copyright for users that come from non-US IP addresses" even when the book is published outside the US in a foreign language, such as the German books about pewter. Considering that they are going full throttle, this means that more non-US books, in English or foreign languages, will be made inaccessible to anyone outside the US. Other archiving sites may have the texts, but as often as not there will be no images.
