Believe it or not quite a number of us do have actual printed books.  I myself have quite a number of actual professionally printed and bound books including the aforementioned Friar's Dictionary, Brook-Little and Fox-Davies. I also have a number of the mentioned photocopies of books no longer available.  I would also say it is very unlikely i am alone in this, so no Robin and yourself are not the only heralds on the list who still own and use printed books.

Coblaith, if you would like I will lookin my books ad see if I can pull example images from the sources mentioned and send them to you.
