Posted By: <b>paul s.</b><p>I'm looking for a few issues from 1896. Are these available? Or is my best bet a library or the Hall of Fame or...? Thanks for any help.

Posted By: <b>p stratton</b><p>Thanks for the tip. Unfortunately, they did not have the issues I am looking for. Anyone know any dealers of this type of material?

Posted By: <b>Joseph</b><p>As far as I can see, they have every 8-page issue for the year 1896. The "search"<br />feature on the site is not quite robust. Keep trying. Also, the quality of the output ain't great.<br /><br />But it's all there. And it's free. If you want help, shoot me a line.
