An on-line Farmer & Henley is a great idea, and anyone with scanner technology should consider assisting Mehlberg in this project. His website, around for two or three years now, is a unique source for research into the nature of English-language bawdy humor, past and present.  His labors have already provided scholars with digitized versions of extremely rare primary sources.
