have you thought about uploading the entire archive to the cloud?
The idea has come up before but which cloud? And if I am to upload it via the internet it will take a loooooong time, to say nothing of my bandwidth allotment if I do it from home. There would be no Netflix for many months.
And more importantly- I suspect that there may be copyright issues. Being obsolete books etc., you might think that nobody would care, but I am not about to experiment with the legal system any more than I already have.
@mhrackin: Remeber, this is just a SAMPLE of what I have book-wise. Max, if you were envious of the storage space in my workshop, I have an equivalent abundance of bookcases upstairs (4 rooms, each with at least a few shelves).
OMG -- you lucky rascal -- the next time I come to Atlanta I want to see your collection!!!
Thank you Max, for the kind remarks. This book sale was bittersweet and I hated to see it go. I worked in an Industrial R&D Lab, we had our own Model/Prototype Shop and I inherited the book from one of the shop supervisors. I don't specialize in any type of books but have kept a few of my own books on older computer systems but I'm only 58, how old can they be?
The work that antediluvian has done on preserving books is remarkable.
On my desk right now is Taschenbuch Fur den Maschinenbau (translated via google as Paperback for the Mechanical Engineer?) Prof. H Dubbel 1935, poor condition, written in German – FREE! any takers? I cannot imagine this would sell on Amazon. I see now that I may have an audience for some of my strange old tech books.
Here is a book I had for sale but delisted it – the reproduction artists are already offering it in paperback, including imperfections: Heaven and It's Wonders and Hell from Things Heard and Seen by Emanuel Swedenborg. Lippincott, 1881 (Swedenborg describes entities that live all around us). Like I said, I don't specialize.
Max, I look forward to seeing more of your projects.
