Dear All,

Recently, Errett Bishop's original book on Constructive Analysis was reprinted by Ishi Press, with a new foreword by Michael Beeson:

(link to Amazon) http://www.amazon.com/Foundations-Constructive-Analysis-Michael-Beeson/dp/4871877140  

Ishi Press is not a major mathematics publishing house, but a Japanese press run by Americans who studied logic and/or mathematics.  

In light of the above, my question to you is:

Which other books (e.g. in Math. Logic) should be reprinted, according to the FOM community?

In particular, which topics/techniques/... are not readily accessible and therefore in danger of falling into oblivion?

For those worried about copyright: there is a legal definition of "out of print" in Japan.  Any book which falls under
this (very broad) definition can be legally reprinted in Japan.
