All of 1937 and Jan - June 1938 + 3 other issues are already available on the American site, so no point in reinventing the wheel ...

It would be easier if I had not upgraded to windows 7, as the HP scanner software and drivers are incompatible, and windows ones make no difference however you set the exposure. Hence it all has to be done manually afterwards. It would be a mammoth task to scan all the pages and manually adjust exposure in PSP to make them presentable.
I usually get good results cleaning up scans with a few tweaks using Paint.NET (not
MS Paint!) so, if you let me have couple of sample scans in .png format, I'll see how easy (or otherwise!) it is to make them presentable.
My Canon Lide-60 works with my W7 machine but not on Helen's pc running W8. However, there is a workaround to resolve this so it might be worth looking on the net to see if anybody has come up with a solution for your scanner.
Another possibility is to try the drivers, etc., for the oldest HP scanner that will
work with W7 to see what happens with your scanner - there may well be a lot of similarities between the two if HP simply upgraded their drivers to add new bells and whistles to what was, basically, an updated version of the same machine.
