I should perhaps have said that I am very fortunate in that Leiden
University is a designated repository for the Humanities (unlike other
universities in the Netherlands, which must be content with electronic
resources), and thus (in principle, at least) we hold paper copies of
things like JA, so when I need to read something, I can go to the library.
So the Société's service is not necessary here, but as a broader question:
why post scans online if they are illegible?
