At some point in the future I would like this section to contain selected pages scanned from Pansy's book. The pages will be scanned from three sources: the original publication, the original with margin notes, and notes Pansy made in preparation for a second edition (never published).
The book contains 370 pages, and scanning every page would create a database far too large for this web site.
I do hope, however, to publish here an index to all persons listed in her book.
