Updater. Just noticed today that J. H. Day 1967 Southern Africa 2 volume monograph is now online, scanned by Natural History Museum Library, London, put online in October '08. Well done those guys.

If you just want to find something quickly online without downloading the pdfs try the flip book versions via archive.org. The interface is blazingly fast. Look at the pop up help for navigation (very intuitive).

Vol 1 has been downloaded over 50 times - obviously not by Annelida list members since no one on the list said a peep about it.

Cheers,

Geoff
