The texts are presented in a convenient Adobe Reader form (.pdf files) suitable for all computer systems and which allows each title to be read individually and at leisure. This format also allows for all the essential illustrations to be shown in their full size, in-situ, as opposed to the text-only 'e-books' sometimes offered. Adobe reader itself is completely free to download from the Adobe web site, although it usually comes pre-installed anyway as standard on most computers.


A wonderful collection offering hours of reading at a low price - Why Not Treat Yourself?

Part 2. The Prints & Photos ...

Fifty illustrations and photos are included in a folder for your personal use and each has been restored and enhanced for making prints.

 Note these are uniquely restored versions and may not be copied for resale or for inclusion in image compilations by other dealers.

 Here are a few much reduced in size examples....


This restored (122mb file size) antique print can be enlarged to poster size if desired!

Note to buyers. Although the underlying material is mostly in the Public Domain due to its age or distribution rights (some material is also exclusive to us) additional editing of damaged material, or other improvements, have been carried out making this varied set a unique offering available
only from Collectaprint in this format.

 DOWNLOADS  are in the usual 'zipped' (compressed) form requiring unzipping upon receipt - a utility for this is usually already installed on most computers and simply requires double clicking on the file to select the unzip command, otherwise it's readily obtainable free on the internet. You will be quickly sent a secure Link for downloading the collection within just hours of your purchase, depending on your time zone. Try it - it's quick, reliable and convenient!

Price Only £4.50 (Download - See Above).

* Please note that a number of the old material scanned will naturally show signs of age, such as an occasional watermark or browning/fading and although readable with minor adjustments to the options already provided with the Adobe software naturally they will not be in as pristine a condition as new volumes. Therefore allowances should be made accordingly. Naturally Copy-able software and computer imagery is not covered by the provisions of the Distance Selling Regulations.
