PDF - Published / funded by Robert Bigelow's NIDS : "Best UFO Cases - Europe" by Illobrand von Ludwiger (with added information regarding NIDS)

In 1998, Robert Bigelow's NIDS (the "National Institute for Discovery Science") published the book "Best UFO Cases - Europe" by Illobrand von Ludwiger (the founder of the Mutual UFO Network - Central European Section, MUFON-CES).  That book included forewords by Dr John Schuessler, Dr Bruce Maccabee and Dr Richard Haines of NARCAP and the contents listed below.

Dr John Schuessler's foreword concludes by stating that "Illobrand von Ludwiger combines all of the better attributes of scientist, investigator and researcher in bringing us this excellent view of the European UFO situation. He concludes the book by profusely referencing every section of the book to source documentation so the reader may go to the source. I hope this is just the beginning and we will be seeing similar documentation of UFO activity from other parts of the world in the near future". 

A couple of years ago, Illobrand von Ludwiger kindly kindly gave me permission to upload this book (thanks to help liaising with him from the German group IGAAP, particularly from Frank Sch├Ąpel). He also helpfully provided some comments about his interaction with Robert Bigelow and NIDS, which helped me with some research I was doing at that time into the UFO research funded by Robert Bigelow and the UFO evidence he had purchased.  Most of his comments are included in an additional section at pages 7-10 of 198 in the PDF I have now uploaded.  

Since the book was published by NIDS (which has been defunct for several years), I thought I should get permission from Robert Bigelow before making the book freely available in my online archive.  After trying to get that permission for the last 2 years via various mutual contacts, this week I had more success during an exchange of emails with Colm Kelleher (currently involved in Robert Bigelow's new Bigelow Institute for Consciousness Studies). During this exchange, I asked if he or Robert Bigelow had any objection to my objecting the book and very promptly obtained a favourable response. I also asked about some further NIDS material and again very promptly got a positive response which included "we are fine with you archiving it", so I'll be uploading some more NIDS material shortly. 

I have now added the book to my online archive.
