    Re: Lecky's "Wrinkles" is online

    "Amazon shows a paperback reprint for $24.  Might be cheaper than the
    ink to print it yourself. "
    Well, if you really want a hardcopy, you may want to wait for a 19th
    century original. I've got one in front of me that I bought for about
    $18 a few years ago. They turn up on ebay and abebooks.com now and
    then. In fact, I may even put mine on ebay, now that the complete text
    is on google books. Note that there is an important advantage to
    reading it there. Hidden behind the images, there is an OCR text
    version which can be searched, though since it's OCR text, it's not
    perfect. Where it says "search in this book", try typing something like
    "moon and weather". Sure enough, it finds page 175 and Lecky's
    skeptical, yet forgiving, comments on this "popular delusion" (which
    really was very common in the 19th century).
