  1. Hello,

    I’m building a database of old magazines. I’ve found some on archive.org, but I can’t find any edition information. Like the month/date of the first and last publication of Baron’s Microcomputing Reports, and the number of issues (in total). I tought maybe some of you would know…

    Thank you,
    Francis
