I know the Gorham archives were available on CD ROM in the past, but has anyone sold them in print form? (All of them?)

I'm not sure who might be selling the poor photo copies of the old Gorham catalogs.

From time to time I have ordered these printouts or CDs. Often the printouts/copies are of poor quality. And scans on disk tend to be as bad or worse.

As I recall, the Gorham archives on CD ROM set is poor quality and incomplete but its more in one place than any other source. The Gorham archives on CD ROM set's engine is Java based and is out of date so technically it is difficult to run and comes with security risks.

I've heard of the compatibility issues and I've seen the poor quality scans. I would not be interested if it's like that, especially for a few hundred dollars.

Oh well. If someone does come out with a quality printed catalogue I'd be all over it as Gorham is my favorite maker. smile
