  1. Ah, well. It’s still on my list, yes. They’re actually pretty short magazines, I’ll see if I can get to them slightly sooner than I might have otherwise. Thanks for the reminder!

  2. Any chance these will be completed. Looking for May/June/July 1985 with Peter Tippett in the field: GLobal Concerns in Micronesia.

    Thanks

    • Scanning takes a while, but I’m going to try to get through these in the next couple of months. I do have a full run of these I think, so I should have that one. I’ll try to prioritize it above the others.

  3. You wll scan the portable companion magazine, great.
    I’m working for the magazine collection from the dutsch st Computermuseum.
