Token References at Google Books: A recent discussion in the Conder Group at Yahoo has revealed that there are some great token references to be found free online at Google books. You can find them by going to http://books.google.com/ , searching for tokens, then limiting the search to "full view" ... or by following this link to token references at Google. Some of these books are also available on CD from euriskodata on eBay. Thanks for the tip guys.
