Please note that many of the issues prior to 1950 were scanned from faded photocopies of the originals. The quality of these early items is not the best but these scans will be replaced by better ones after the entire series of journals has been scanned and put online. The Bio-Dynamics Association (USA) is collaborating with the Soil And Health Library to offer a complete series including all 260 issues since 1941. This project should be completed before the year 2008 ends.
