    Alex, you wrote:
    "Frank refers to a 1804 almanac "available" on the Mystic
    Seaport page, but I am still unable to figure out how can
    one actually use these Mystic Seaport web "publications".
    (Maybe because I am not too good with computers. George once
    said, however, that he also cannot use them)."
     
    George unfortunately has an old Mac which presumably implies an old web browser, too. What web browsing software do you use?
     
    And:
    "The problems are thst
    a) one cannot print/download the whole document, only one
    page at a time"
     
    I'm sure that this would not be a problem for you if you could see the pages.
     
    And:
    "and
    b) this one page comes with "frames" which do not contain any useful
    information, the page (of the almanac itself) comes out so
    small in print that I can hardly read it."
     
    The small print page you're refering to is probably the "thumbnail" image. The actual pages are in the large frame to the right of the table of contents and they are quite legible. Does your web browser have trouble with frames?
