        Subject: a book collection of historical interest

Most here will recall that the pioneer digital humanist, Joseph Raben, 
founder of the first journal in the field, died recently. His widow, 
Frankie Raben, is now urgently looking for someone to take away Joe's 
library of books and other printed material. Apparently the local 
libraries are not interested. Whoever gets this collection would have 
quite an enviable resource for studying the history of the field.

This collection is located in Barrington, Rhode Island, U.S. 
Unfortunately the cost of shipping prohibits sending them anywhere, so 
they would need to be picked up.

Expressions of interest are welcome. Please e-mail me directly, to 
<willard.mccarty at mccarty.org.uk> and, if you would, let me know what you 
would do with the collection.
