I’m very pleased to announce that, except for a few finishing touches — internal links, minor points of formatting, and the like — the Fair Use Repository‘s online edition of Benjamin Tucker’s individualist anarchist classic, Instead of a Book, by a Man Too Busy to Write One is now available in full, with all 497 pages of content from the second edition (1897) now available for you to peruse and enjoy. For details on the three sections newly added — on Communism, Methods, and Miscellaneous — see the Fair Use Blog 2007-11-06.
Now, the next question is, what to do next? I have some standing projects that I will continue to work on apace — especially Bertrand Russell’s The Principles of Mathematics. But I’m also very interested to hear suggestions. What do you think would be good to tackle next? Ideally, it should be something that’s:
- Available in the public domain
- Not available online, hard to find online, or formatted inaccessibly (e.g. only in PDFs, only in scanned images, etc.)
Suggest away in the comments.
Also, if there are particular projects would be especially valuable to you — valuable enough that you would be interested in sponsoring the time needed to get them online — you might mention it to me, either in the comments or in an e-mail. I’m working freelance these days, so anything of the sort would get some very prompt and dedicated attention.
