Judges’ Collective Comments: “We really enjoyed judging this unique entry. Most ‘reprints’ and just that…a reprint of the original only. Through the creativity of Imaging Specialists, more information has been added and yet still you get the sense that it’s an 1889 issue. Adding to this paper has not taken anything away from it… it has enhanced it. The paper has been wonderfully reproduced and while many, including us, get carried away with the information contained therein, we must never forget the technical skills it takes to add new information to an old entity. While Imaging Specialists seem to have made it look somewhat easy…from experience we know the level of skill is remarkable.”
