Thanks for the info on GATW back issues that were reprinted.
Not only is a complete set of GATW back issues cost prohibitive for most
people, but a purchaser then has the problem of storage. A CD with all the
back issues on it makes more sense to me. Assuming for the moment that such
a CD could be produced, what would it sell for? Obviously not as much as a
complete set of back issues - it wouldn't sell.
As a frame of reference, the complete 32 volume Encyclopedia Britannica sells
for around $1300.00 and up, while the same set on CD (including a dictionary,
an atlas, and more) sells for around $60.00. Big difference in price when
people are buying the information only.
The information in all the back issues of GATW should be available to
everyone, in CD format, at a reasonable price.
