i couldn't find this information on the web site, but i am wondering how the catalogs are formatted. are consecutive pages (with spanned images) concatenated? or are only individual pages viewable? what is the format of the page images and what is the maximum resolution? to answer some questions on this forum, i sometimes crop pieces off my scanned catalog images to use as examples. is this possible with these digital catalogs? or are the only images accessible through screen capture? that is, are the raw images available to use (eg: Save image as...)?
there are repro American Flyer catalogs. i was missing 1932 and managed to pick up the repro for a pretty reasonable price.
Each page is scanned individually but much effort was expended to make sure the pages line up as you scroll across the page from left to right. I do have a couple of sample images on the web-site:
The pages are saved as JPEGs at 100 DPI which provides plenty of resolution for online viewing and casual prints. A snippet or two could be taken from the images for reference but, as you can imagine, full blown replication would not be acceptable.
Please let me know if I can provide any additional information.
