In 1973, Neil Sloane's book "A Handbook of Integer Sequences" was less than
an inch thick and weighed about 1 pound.

In 1995, the Sloane/Plouffe book "The Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences"
was slightly over an inch thick and weighed 2 pounds.

Now, if printed double sided on 24# paper, OEIS would be about 40 feet long
and weigh over a 1000 pounds.

Keep up the good work!


On January 15-18, 2014, OEIS will be exhibiting at the "2014 Joint
Mathematics Meeting" in Baltimore, Maryland. See

We have 3 signed copies of the 1973 book that will be prizes in a contest.
We hope to see you there!

Best regards,

Tony Noe
OEIS Treasurer
