The
Philomathean
Society

Books

Books and Book-Like Publications

As befits a literary society, the Philomathean Society produces books from time to time (most famously our Rosetta Stone Report) to supplement our Library collection.

In addition, many of our members are themselves authors. When we hear of a Philo publishing a book, we’ll be sure to post it in this category. If you are a Philomathean author and want a bit of publicity from your Alma Pater, please contact the Librarian!

What follows is a list of some past Philomathean authors (not counting our honorary members, of course), with links to their books if we can find them (and they are in the public domain).
