Fullbooks.com is empty of publication info!
I don't care if the copyrights are expired. To throw text out there without the context of publication date and place is a bibliographical sin and a shame.
Is the purose of Fullbooks to provide e-access to reading material or a research data base?
Bibliographic sin, isn't tha t a new sin catagory?
Providing access to these works online is a wonderful service. I see nothing wrong with it. As for lacking publication info, it seems to me that this would be a problem if and only if it was unacceptable to cite URLs in notes and bibliographies, but that is no longer the case.
I guess we shall just have to disagree on this point is all.
