    Anyone know of any good books or websites with plenty of pictures on these two subjects? A few google searches didn't really reveal what I was looking for..

    Thanks

    Anyway, that is what I found using the library search.

    Anyway, if you are in Morris County, you can put them on HOLD and they'll ship to your local libary.

    If not, many of them are found in Morristown, so if you're not far away, you can take a trip. If you're interested in a particular book, you can PM me and I can tell you which library has it which you can look at...
