La Belle Assemblee Sept 1807

I'm having difficulty scanning from the center of the book, as you can see by the blurring on the left side of the fashion plate.  I finally broke down and ordere a "hand scanner", which will arrive some time next week.

Ladies' Monthly Museum, May 1816

I've scanned these pictures and articles from a compilation book- therefore, there is some distortion around the "gutter" area (middle of the book). Luckily, I have a very good scanner and accompanying application for it, which lessens the problems.

The scanner/printer/fax machine is really great. I dropped it when I was moving last October "CRASH! Tinkle-clunk". Goodbye lovely printer-scanner! So I bought another, exactly the same.  Not too expensive, about $150.00 with shipping.

My first ever scanner (1990), which was only a scanner! cost $2,000.00 dollars. It was a bit larger, but other than that, does not compare to my current one.
