That list doesn't appear to include any of the great books by others that he translated into English, like Antoniadi's "The Planet Mercury" and "The Planet Mars".

He also did a gargantuan translation of Flammarion's two-volume "The Planet Mars" work, a massive 2000-page effort that, unfortunately, was never published. There are only a few copies of this rough, hand-typed manuscript floating around. Sir Patrick graciously granted me permission to get a copy of it, a boon that I'll never forget.

He was a great man; that bibliography doesn't begin to cover what he did for all of us. He was a bridge between the old days and the new, and a towering figure in both eras.
