    Good ol "U of I", I spent three years in Urbana myself. A hundred and
    forty two miles from downtown Chicago. I made that drive almost every
    weekend to see my girl friend back in Chicago but that lasted only the
    first year.

    > For anyone interested in these, you can also replace .es in these URLs by 
    .com. Of course the book itself is in Spanish, but the search and reading 
    controls are then in English. The book id's do not change.

    Europe, but they are still a goldmine of useful information from the late 
    18th century.

    room at Urbana, Illinios to read some parts of this "Tratado". Now anyone on 
    Earth with a decent Internet connection can read them from their own homes.
