Thanks for collecting these, it's little things like this that make our movement possible.

I'm continually amazed at what was marketed to the general reader in the old days. Even as recently as the 1950s laymen were expected to handle difficult works, for example Shirer's "The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich" was a 1k-page mass market paperback. That would never happen today.

Seems to me any hope of a free society is dependent on the people's general ability to read and digest sophisticated material.

Great links. Have you searched for printed copies on ebay? Sometimes antiquarian books are surprisingly cheap.
