What excellent taste in books you have patdzon! Chapman now has his well-deserved place on the list. See if you can get the Norman Rockwell by following the instructions below, but if you have trouble I can reupload my copy after Tuesday (I've just used up my month's bandwidth so I'd have to wait till then). It's well worth getting - I remember especially he tells some great tales of studying under George Bridgman at the Art Student's League.
Do you have a download manager that permits batch downloads already? If you're using Windows you could try Net Transport which I've been using for the last few years.

This is the link you get:
Glad you like the Athenaeum site, grenappels, and glad to here it's up again for that matter. It's a fantastic site but it has a habit of seeming to disappear completely for months at a time, so I'd strongly advise you to get everything you want there while you can.
Pope's papers describe a colour space founded on the system of Denman Ross (see links on the first post of this thread), and show how to use this space to visualize colour relationships under varying illumination, etc. His work is a major inspiration for many of the principles that I discuss on Dimensions of Colour, starting here:
