Dear Mr. Skulski,

Are the authors the current holders of the copyright? We may ask them if
they have it, and try through for example lulu.com (for printing on demand)
if VDF is not interested any more. or if the authors consider the material
has exceeded its scientific half-life period and want to preserve it as
part of the Oberon culture, then we may scan the materials (one possible
destination is Archive.org).
