Thanks very much anastasiav. It's definitely an improvement over the University of Wisconsin version, particularly with the indexing. Comparing one with the other, the illustrations are far superior too. I wish they were higher resolution, alas beggars can't be...

Well this is really awesome. I just read about the Borrowed days of March, which I'd never even heard of before. Thanks!
