I hope you are all well and ready for the fall, whatever it might bring in these uncertain times.
My wife Ruth and I are moving from Portland to Berkeley in the near future (yes, our son and his family live there -- he is a professor at Cal Berkeley); our new flat will have many advantages, but alas, not nearly enough space for all our books, papers, and media.
I'm writing in the hope of finding new homes for (i.e. giving away) any or all of my large set of books on Ada. I've been collecting these since Ada's beginning in the early 1980s; I think I have all (or very nearly all) the Ada books ever published. The list is included below.
Please email me if you're interested in any of these. Ruth has very kindly offered to work with you on the shipping logistics; we ask only that you reimburse us for the shipping costs. Overseas mailing has become such an expensive hassle that I'd prefer the destinations to be in the U.S.
Book dealers don't usually have the understanding or respect for the content of these books, so they have little to no sale value. But they might well have real value to people in the Ada community who know the field.
One further note: a colleague here in Oregon is creating an undergrad library of computing books at the state university where he teaches. He is interested in taking all the books that aren't claimed by others. He'll be coming to Portland in a week or so to pick them up, so we must move fast. I NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU BY THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 9. I apologize for the short lead time, but I only found out about this a few days ago.
Best regards to you and yours; please stay out of COVID's way!
