Towards A P&C Bibliography

A complete bibliography for all members of the P&C, past and present, would be a huge undertaking, but well worth while. There is a regrettable unawareness of our past members' accomplishments, and the books and articles by them or about them are too often neglected as well.

To address this I have begun to compile such a bibliography. The following represents only notes on the subject, but at least it is a beginning. I have included books authored by P&C members, monographs about P&C members, or notable publications illustrated by or collecting works by P&C members. The following is in rough chronological order, older members first. (Someday I’d like to see the club library contain a copy of all of these, and if you have some of the rarer titles, I'd love to see them.)
