Someone selling 41 complete issues scanned onto a CD. Sounds like a pretty nice little bundle. But... is it worth 20 dollars?

How much does any magazine cost for a single copy? 41 issues for $20 - you have to ask is it worth it? If you get 5 hints or learn 5 things from all those you have well paid for the whole lot. - buy them and enjoy or I may.

You can search on Google books and download Volume 2(12 issues). That could help you decide if you want to buy the ones on Ebay

Since it's from 1902, I'm guessing it's past copyright, correct? (75 years, IIRC?)

Also, where's the download link? I'm just getting snippets...

I don't see a "buy it now" link.

Sorry Grant. I was refering to the ebay seller. Here it is.

To download the pdf, on the upper right click on PDF. It's about 77 mb.

Could prove to be the best twenty dollars you ever spent. I spent about twenty minutes just glancing around and learned a bucket full of stuff right there...

Hey- Anybody here from Toronto ???
Have a look at page 42 and notice the picture of the wrought iron work then located atop the Alexandra gates at Queens Park in Toronto. It would be very interesting to see if that work is still there today.

Cool. It's nice to know they are still there after all these years. Too bad about the huge amount of wrought iron work lost in Europe with all the bombing, etc. in WWII. Haven't been up to Toronto in a few years, maybe I'll make it a point to get there for the St. Patrick's Day parade in '11. I've been to a few of those in Toronto and they're always great.

Well, before Dklunker pointed out the same offer for $16.57, I had put in a max bid of $40.00. Woulda been OK but.......... Just looked at it and someone bid it up to $41.00! So I ordered the $16.57 one! Thanks Dkunkler!

Let me know what you think! I'm still considering it, I'm very tight on money and I'm trying to save for an apartment. :)
