Just a quick question - I've gotten some quotes for reprinting J.D. Haywards 1893 "Canoeing with Sail and Paddle" and am considering reprinting it. The retail cost for a re-typeset hardbound book will be in the $30-50 range (the upper end is if we have the original cover art embossed on the reprint covers). Given that the book will remain available for free on my website ( for those who may have missed it), I'd like to get a feel for the level of interest in such a thing. An off-list email with a yeah or nay is sufficient, but more detailed comments are always welcome.
