I am scanning and scanning and scanning, page by page, a book I got by interlibrary loan, because I have not had time to sufficiently memorize it in the allotted time of a few weeks; it is a French / French Congo Bateke dictionary. This book, by the way, was published in 1911 and has apparently not been read since. At least I ascertain so by the fact that as I read through it trying to see if the dialect matched the one I have been semi-studying, I came across several pages that had not been cut apart by the printing press. No one, in almost a hundred years, had bothered to see what was between the uncut pages. So I did. I don’t know if it’s legal to use scissors on a century-old book I do not own.
