Hi All:

Much thanks to everyone who sent along information on their favorite
sources of out-of-print and otherwise hard to find scientific and technical
books.  Here's the list, divided into a few useful (I hope) categories but
otherwise in no particular order.  I've checked on many, but not all of
these sources, and I cannot vouch for the accuracy of the information or
the reliability of any source.

Cheers,

Rich
