Books are something wonderful. As long as PDF files cannot capture the scent of paper, they remain indispensable.
At least as a link to the knowledge of days long gone, they are important.
Some MSX users have made it their task to preserve this knowledge. Book collectors have long been sharing their possessions in huge file collections.
Today we want to present you some collections on the net and ask you to share and reveal your own sources so we can add them to the list.

Is the "Greeting more from MSX Witch..." title just a bad transcription, or OCR of the actual "Getting more from MSX with Spectravideo and all MSX Computers" title, or am I missing some kind of pun?

Also, isn't that just a single book, rather than a collection?

As for actual collections, sndpl (Sylvester from Gen-MSX I guess?) made several books accessible through the Internet Archive: https://archive.org/details/@sndpl and has several magazines archived on tIA in his favourites collection: https://archive.org/details/fav-sndpl

Just searching for MSX on tIA also reveals a lot of books and texts: https://archive.org/search.php?query=MSX

I have to mention Antoniutti - he single handed scanned almost all of brazilian books. Unfortunately, he left the scene when people started selling his PDFs on the internet :/

You have a LOT of books and magazines (most in Portuguese, but there are others in Spanish and English there too) over on datassete.

As i have posted on the french translation (does someone read it ? Smile ), i'd like to see the first and second issues of the french magazine « Standard MSX ».

They must be very seldom, i've never see them and don't think they have been scanned.
Thank you if you own them Smile

Wow, selling, that must’ve been quite some time ago, I can’t imaging anyone paying for PDFs on the internet now.

Here is another book (in Russian) for your collection.
It explains algorithms with help of MSX Basic.

Unfortunatelly, that site doesn't allow downloading the .PDF. But you can find this book (and a lot more) here:
