    That’s great news. Now I won’t have to try and decide which pages to photocopy to send to you from the photocopy I made of the entire thing after I borrowed it on interlibrary loan as the original was too expensive. How many more people will be able to see it now that couldn’t before?

    PS I wonder if many people have read all of the Hypnerotomachia Poliphili online instead of the book version?

    Hi just wondering why it tells me I don’t have permission to view the Flickr set? Thanks

    Hi Tom. I’ve no idea why that is, it’s not my page. The book is still subject to copyright, however, so there may be a problem posting all the pages in this way.
