At this point, in the first edition of this website, there was a set of scanned images. It has recently been restored. It was for a time replaced by bibliography text supplied by John Bateman, with nearly the same scope. But, there were differences, so they are both here now (October 2000). As a result, this page now has the benefits of being fairly complete and partly searchable.
We thank John for this upgrade, and encourage other submissions. As a caution, John notes: (N.B., since these were also created without human intervention there could well be errors!) In other words, to err is computerish.
