What's going on with Lindsay? I no longer get catalogs of his reprinted
books and his web site has changed drastically.

Dunno about the website, but I've gotten a catalog, ordered, and gotten my
books all within the last few weeks. And catalogs were arriving every few
months IIRC, even though I don't order from every catalog, maybe skipping
two or three between orders.

Last Lindsey catalog I got had a note on it to the effect of "Buy
something or we won't send you another catalog".

If I didn't have a current catalog, I would work from the "Books Now In
Stock" page, since it was updated just four days ago:

Thanx all! (esp to Mike) Temporarily consumed with the DA, I was entering
the wrong URL. I was spelling out "books" rather than abbreviating as in
www.lindsaybks.com. Of course there really is such a site dealing in old
books, among other things; so my confusion was compounded. All is well with
the world, now. I can get in to Lindsay's site. FWIW, I was looking there
to see if Lindsay did a reprint of "A Catechism of the Steam Engine" as is
available on line from Michigan Univ. I saw a link to it in an earlier post
on RCM - sorry I can't recall the name now, but thanx anyway. Actually I
found a lot of reprints of "A Catechism of the Steam Engine" available from
Abe Books and others for around $20 - $30. Also found some handsomely
priced originals of this mid 1800's tome. One was $265 from a used book
dealer - the add was almost apologetic because the dust cover was missing.
