While I still have a good ways to go on the full Scientific American collection I’ve at least gotten the first 15 volumes of Series 2 completed.
They are posted and available for download.
I decided to go ahead and post them as ZIP files of each Volume since the individual issues are fairly small and with 26 issues per volume that’s a LOT of individual files. I zipped each volume into a separate ZIP file.
They’re roughly in the 200mb-300mb range so they are not too large and they are a lot more convenient to download this way.
I’m also looking for a complete index of the series because searching through 3000+ issues for an article on a specific subject is a bit onerous at best. Hopefully I’ll find a decent one that will make the collection more usable.
