Thanks for the link. You all don't know how lucky you are to have somebody else scan that & put it online. I set out to scan an early BJP Almanac once & gave up on the front set of adverts. The Almanacs up to WW1 were all about 1300 pages & as the 100 year+ paper's so fragile there's no way of speeding it up, even when the binding has failed & it's a pile of pages.

The old BJP Almanacs are worth owning for the adverts and the magnificent gravure plates. I have a set back to 1932 complete except for the 1935 edition which has proved a bit elusive. Agree, I wouldn't like to undertake scanning even a single volume, particularly the much older and thicker ones.

Seems people had more time "back in the day." Can you imagine sitting down to read that today? or even the postage to deliver?

Thanks for the link. Interesting to see how much things have changed and how much they haven't.
