Be happy it was only $24.  I payed over $100/copy for fascimilies of the first 4 editions of the Playford books from the library of Austrailia, before I was lucky enough to get to Harvard and download them all.  I was also lucky that Traehern and Justinan went thirdsies with me on at least two of them.  

I grew up in the Washington, DC, area, and we often went to the
Smithsonian museums.  Their admission is free.  The first out-of-town
museum I went to was in Chicago, the Field Museum.  They charged a
mandatory fee for admittance.  It felt like I was being charged
admission to church.

I feel more here.  Charging for work is not implausible, but it's a
government records office.  And they've already scanned this, so
charging for e-mailing an existing document?  Worse, requiring a
promise not to redistribute?!  Are they afraid the copyright holder
will sue?

"A promise not to provide copies to anyone else".  Though I find the
temptation to be an oath-breaker to be strong here ...

Denyel (and I hate that the most plausible redaction notion I've hit
on so far is that the Gresley dances were a lost time traveller doing
rugby league play-by-play) de Linccolne
