Maine Coon Literature

There are several Books about the Maine Coon– and they are of course available in many languages. So here we collect all of these for you. Some of them obviousely are already out of print, but I am sure one still can find them somewhere. And if you know about one we have not listened so far, especially neither in english nor german- please send us a message so we can include it.
