What's going on with Lindsay?  I no longer get catalogs of his reprinted
books and his web site has changed drastically.

Dunno about the website, but I've gotten a catalog, ordered, and gotten my
books all within the last few weeks.  And catalogs were arriving every few
months IIRC, even though I don't order from every catalog, maybe skipping
two or three between orders.

It looks the same (bad) now as it did last year, Bob. Did you want the
Gingery page?

Last Lindsey catalog I got had a note on it to the effect of "Buy
something or we won't send you another catalog".

How so?


Re: Lindsay's Books
If I didn't have a current catalog, I would work from the "Books Now In
Stock" page, since it was updated just four days ago:

Thanx all!  (esp to Mike) Temporarily consumed with the DA, I was entering
the wrong URL.  I was spelling out "books" rather than abbreviating as in  Of course there really is such a site dealing in old
books, among other things; so my confusion was compounded.  All is well with
the world, now.  I can get in to Lindsay's site.  FWIW, I was looking there
to see if Lindsay did a reprint of  "A Catechism of the Steam Engine" as is
available on line from Michigan Univ.  I saw a link to it in an earlier post
on RCM - sorry I can't recall the name now, but thanx anyway.  Actually I
found a lot of reprints of "A Catechism of the Steam Engine" available from
Abe Books and others for around $20 - $30.  Also found some handsomely
priced originals of this mid 1800's tome.  One was $265 from a used book
dealer - the add was almost apologetic because the dust cover was missing.
