Uhm, we *are* collectors, and they are hard to find...

I'd love to start a "re-publishing house" and bring back limited runs of classic computer-related tomes, of course they wouldn't be cheap, unless they were cheaply bound, but it could be an interesting sideline.

Those Forth books are good, for the information they hold - repackaged and made available at a reasonable cost, I think they could sell in small numbers still... Hrm, maybe what we need is a "Pre-Internet Bookmobile" - books printed *before* the internet...
