Mindful of several reviews (on US Amazon)that panned the quality of the cartoons on the two CDs I decided to use an Amazon Marketplace Seller and got this huge book (new and still shrink-wrapped from Caiman in Florida) at a good price. As to the quality of the CD cartoons on my screen, no problem. The default seems to be fifty-two percent of the original and there is the option to make them any size if you want to, the captions come out black and are perfectly readable. I really didn't expect more than sixty-eight thousand cartoons to be of pristine quality unless the originals were scanned and this would obviously make copyright problems, so I am quite happy with what I see on screen.
As it is I have a wonderful (handsomely designed and printed) book of cartoons and the option to see, on the CDs, all the work of my favorites, Charles Saxon, Robert Weber, Sam Gross, Chon Day and Bill Hamilton's brilliant work about the goings-on in the financial world. A bargain!
