Once this [restoration of learning] was the task of
princes, and it was the greatest glory of Ptolemy.
But his library was contained between the narrow
walls of its own house, and Aldus is building up a
library which has no other limits than the world
itself. -- Erasmus, Adages, 1508
I love the Web. You can find all kinds of
interesting information. At least theoretically you
can. Of course, things come and go, and
sometimes you canÕt find what youÕre looking for.
