Hey,

thanks for posting that up, some pretty interesting looking manuscripts. I've downloaded a few and am hoping to find the odd gem buried in there,

thanks again,

Sea.

Thanks, very useful list. I was surprised to see the Bruce Elliott book in there, as it's much too modern to be public domain - but it is in fact Daisy locked.

There is a Daisy locked edition, but there is also a "borrowable" edition. You get to read the book for 15 days

Ah, thanks. Fortunately I already have a copy! For anyone who hasn't - highly recommended.

Excellent!
I wonder if it's possible to find more resources like that.

If you are subscribed to lybrary.com - which is free... you can access the old learned pig project database of books.
just click on "my account" and then scroll down to the "tools" section and click on "TLPP: The Learned Pig Project."

Thanks for posting I have passed on to my son as he is stuck for ideas, so that should keep him quiet
