the ~archive is a tool to provide easy electronic access to out-of-print or hard-to-find texts.
These are not the old books you can already get for free on your Kindle or iPad through Project Gutenberg, or what you can find, sometimes incomplete, on Google Books. We will be reproducing these books digitally (without destroying the originals) and making them publicly available in a wide variety of formats. [UNDER CONSTRUCTION! Check out the web BETA!]
