      [Intro to be added...]

      Many of the PDF files here have been reduced in size and require version 9.0 or later of Adobe Reader (or an equivalent PDF reader) to view them. (Version 9.0 came out in 2008, and since then there have been several newer editions.) In most cases we have also changed the files to searchable format, if they were not already in that form.

      Some items may have the file extension “.djvu”. These files require the WinDjView program to read them. This reader can be obtained for free at:   (Linux users have the capability to read .djvu files integrated into their PDF readers of the major desktops: Okular in KDE, Evince in GNOME.)
