I have a stack of Wireless World magazines from the late 20s and early 30s that used to belong to my grandfather. I'm not sure if they are in good enough shape to scan but they really do need preserved before time takes its toll on the paper. Maybe set up a camera mount and photograph each page?

Better to use flatbed scanner

There's a great app for the iphone called CamScanner, which takes a photo of a page and then processes it. The result is typically almost indistinguishable from a high quality scan.

Unfortunately, it doesn't, especially if you zoom image. Better to use good flatbed and software with auto-adjustment of black/white levels (e.g. VueScan). Additionally, you will need to set up descreening at 125 lpi.

It would be a very great thing if they could be scanned and made available. Like other people, I think a flatbed scanner is the way to go.

Many of those articles are from the period in the 1980s when WW saw itself as an alternative physics magazine. Not mainstream science. Some might even turn out to be true, but that will come via the conventional route of peer reviewed proper papers not popular ramblings.
