    I was aware of Google Book's digitizing operation, having elsewhere read something of it. I had not, till today, actually looked at the site. Going to the site, what I came upon there struck me as quite amazing, even though I merely glanced at a couple of titles.

    In any event, I was particularly interested in the fact that "print on demand" copies of titles are available, at what strike me as quite reasonable prices, given that these volumes are long out of print, and that original copies might have become quite rare and expensive.

    I might even be tempted to browse through the texts of some on my computer monitor, though I must admit that, for the most part, I hate doing much reading off a computer monitor screen.

    In conclusion, thank you for reminding me of this valuable resource.
