The Earliest CERA publications: Fan trips, Maps, and Bulletins #1 through #30

From the first years of CERA, we present CERA's earliest publications including bulletins #1 through #15. Before CERA printed full sized books as bulletins, there were these shorter bulletins.

Note: Each of these files is a PDF—a standard type of document widely used on the Internet to share information in a way that looks the same on any computer. If you can't view these files, download the Adobe Reader or try using Google Chrome as your Web browser (which can handle PDFs, natively).
