The books are presented as graphic images, so the user sees the works just as they were originally published. They are intended to look and function very much like "real" books. This is accomplished using the powerful Adobe Acrobat reader which is provided free on the CD for Windows and Macintosh systems. This CD has no electronic indexes, but each work has a complete human-generated name index. In addition, numerous bookmarks have been added which make it easy to move through the books, and from book to book. This CD is best viewed with monitor resolution 800x600 or higher. 1999, CD, Graphic Images, Adobe Acrobat, v6, PC and Mac, 1278 pp. 101-CD1264 ISBN: 0788412647
