In general, so far I have downloaded only the specimen indices and a few other pages of special interest. These resources may supply working specimens for future revival projects. Enjoy!

*Hathi allows visitors not authorized by registered institutional partners to download this entire catalog. This is the first time I have noticed this option. Usually, downloads are limited to only one page at a time.
