Re: [glosalist] Hogben's "Interglossa"

Hi Bill, Well, I have a copy of the original war-time print too. I guess I could try to make a fair copy also.

But the only prob. is I've retured, and moved up the mountains behind  Sydney, and my books are mostly still in boxes.  It would probably take me  longer to find the right box, and then the right settings on the scanner,  thaan to be successful with a Google search.

 I am looking into eBook publishing as part of my retirement  activities.  Any suggestions about potential titles and formats?
 Basically eBooks are all in the self-help category, but Glosa might be  able to find its way in there.  I did read that we can incclude some sound  with PDF format.  Do you know how to do this?  I have Jaws2, not the proper  Adobe PDF maker.  Eventually, If I do get serious about eBooks, I could  have to shell out the hundreds to get the proper Adobe product.


Robin Gaskell P.S. Here is an attachment in DOC format of a rather nice scene from the newly released MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game), Horizons. At 12:55 PM 1/1/04 -0500, you wrote:

Santa left a scanner this year, and I can think of only one reason for him to do that… It must be time to scan Hogben’s “Interglossa” that John Schilke sent me a year or so ago! Only twenty or so pages so far (1-19,42,43):

Does anybody have a good scan of the Hogben photo on the bio page? I could monkey around with my scanner settings a bit and see if I can improve my scan, but I know I’ve seen that pic before on the Web. I just can’t find it today…
