Default FREE: Old issues of Wireless World, Practical Wireless and Radio Constructor

My Dad passed away recently, and Iím looking to find good new homes for his magazines. There are:
199 issues of Wireless World (from the 50s, 60s, 70s and early 80s);
40 issues of Practical Wireless (from the 50s and 60s)
90 issues of Radio Constructor (almost all from the 60s).

Their condition is generally quite good, but with some rusty staples and a few tears. I can provide a full list of dates and conditions if needed.

The ideal is to find somebody who is prepared to come and pick them all up (theyíre in Coventry, England), but Iím prepared to listen to other notions.

If you can help me save them from the paper recycler, send me a PM. I know that for them to go someone who could properly appreciate them would have pleased my Dad very much.

If you giving them away for free, I would hope that they would
end up with someone with a scanner, and a willingness to share
with other enthusiasts. These resources are good source of
valuable ideas, and can help many people, not just one.
Especially, in situation, like this.

Totally agree - If I were'nt 3000 miles away, I'd get them and scan them - especially the Hi-Fi related articles

If these were to be boxed and shipped, what do you reckon it would cost to ship across the pond? I might be willing to spring for the high cost to save them from the shredder....

I might be willing to contribute a few dollars towards the cost of shipping.
I have a few bucks left in my PapayaPal account. Would $10- help??

I am certainly open to sharing the expenses to get these saved....might even be willing to run a library for them as well for issues people want to use....

May I suggest digitising and burning to a DVD???
How many people need to contribute the same amount to cover the shipping?
A copy of the disk in return perhaps.
PM me you PP address and you will have $10- and I'll not buy the tweeters I'm looking at.
pay-it forward

A random (1975) copy of Wireless World weighs 325g, or just under 3/4 lb.

Does anybody know enough about shipping methods to be able to calculate the cost of sending the magazines to a new home in the USA?
