John/ Bannockburn bhoy,

If only I had more space!!

Pity we never did what Society of Ancients (SoA) did and digitalised the old paper ones and then they sold cds to new or existing members to raise cash, all the while making clear copyright belonged to original authors. Somebody had time to go through old SoA Slingshot journals scanning them and removing adverts so just articles got onto cds.

This has come up before, but to be clear: we can't legally do that without the original authors' permission. The reason we have a digital version of issue 53 is that I chased up as many of the authors as I could find and got that permission. I wasn't able to find all of them, hence some articles aren't included.

I know we did it for Hobilar the Lance & Longbow journal, as I was involved in the rework after scanning. I'm not sure we ever sorted out copyright for all the authors, but most of the artwork was organised vis the editor(society). It gave me a lot more space on my shelves and provided some copies I had missed.
What's the point of doing one period, when you can do them all.......... In life most people specialise so gradually they know more and more about less and less so eventually they know everything about nothing. I work on a broad front so eventually I'll know nothing about everything.

i would surmise that it would take a helluva effort and also be extremely time consuming to track down and get permission from everyone involved. John
