Nice collection Cyrus, although it would help if you resize pictures having mercy on us mere mortals using 4 MBPS dialup connections .

Do you have the book "Automobiles of the Maharaja's" by Manvendra Singh?

Priceless!! Please make sure you take care of these books very well,cyrus.
I guess it would be fair to expect a write up from you,after you've gone through all these books..

How about scanning some of those manuals and sharing them with us Cyrus. Especially the 1100 which Im sure a lot of members would really find useful.

Super collection Cyrus. It will be worth a reading (if available) of rather if you post these.

@ Mods: Can you resize the photos please?

Oh yes, that would be very useful. When can we expect them Cyrus? A xerox will do just fine if you dont have a scanner.

If you look at the right places you can find them heavily discounted. At the last Crossword sale they were marked at 3500, which is still a lot, but the book is terrific.

Right there Karl, sharing is loving. When can we expect the photocopies Cyrus. They'd also serve as backups to your original copies. We'll pay for the scanning / copying.

Guys if there is sufficient interest among members to get the Manvinder Book and we have sufficient quantities we can go directly to the publisher and get it at a wholesale rate.maybe we can get a poll going to see how many people want the book. What say Karlos?
